The Charterhouse Causeway Bay raises donation for World Vision Hong Kong to support survivors from Philippines Typhoon Relief Operation
Super-typhoon Haiyan, reported by media as possibly the strongest tropical cyclone in recorded history, struck Central Philippines on 8 November 2013, resulting in massive destruction and casualties. Death toll has exceeded 2,000 and the UN estimates that some 11.5 million people have been affected with 1.7 million being children. Responding to the community need, The Charterhouse Causeway Bay hosted a donation activity and has raised an amount of HK$5,470 for the World Vision Hong Kong supporting its Philippines Typhoon Relief operation.
Mr. Bernard Rodrigues, General Manager of The Charterhouse Causeway Bay presented a cheque to World Vision Hong Kong, Ms Rilly Law, Corporate Relations Officer to help typhoon victims to rebuild their lives on 27 March 14. Mr Rodrigues said: “The total amount of money we collected will be donated to the World Vision Hong Kong which is doing vital work to help the people of Philippines to get back on their feet. As striving back to the community has always been our key mission, besides taking action for the critical affairs, we also run a meaningful long term program “Child Care Donation” with World Vision in the past two years, and more than HK$40,000 has been donated by hotel guests to support World Vision that help underprivileged children in more than 100 developing countries around the world.”
The Charterhouse Causeway Bay is committed to building a harmonious community through actively involving in various social activities such as the regular donation to World Vision, UNICEF and many more. We have also set up our corporate team to enhance our social participation through organizing and participating in a number of activities such as visiting the elderly and assisting the socially deprived people.
