All of us have been deeply saddened by the tragedies that have affected the people of the Philippines following the force of typhoon Yolanda. We have been especially moved by stories of suffering by those in the Eastern Visayas and Tacloban City.
Inspired by the immediate relief aid work initiated by Susana Voss-Cruz, we have contacted some of our business partners for help and support to provide goods for aid. TROGE MEDICAL provided medical products and VAN BAERLE hygiene products, which were air-freighted with the support of LOGWIN Logistics to Hong Kong. In Hong Kong these goods were further consolidated with other aid products for a shipment directly to the disaster areas in the Philippines.
This is an unprecedented tragedy and we are fortunate that within our sector, we have been able to pull together in support for those who continue to live the impact of this disaster.
