Maybank Foundation, Inc. through Medical Relief Society (MERCY) has donated RM200,000.00 or nearly PhP3 million to Nasunugan Elementary School in Ormoc City, which was ravaged by Super Typhoon Haiyan in 2013.
Maybank Foundation Chairman Tan Sri Megat Zaharuddin Megat Mohd Nor said, "Maybank's partnership with Mercy Malaysia in disaster mitigation had enabled us to react quickly with coordinated aid to the recent flood disaster."
Meanwhile, Shahril Azuar Jimin, the CEO of Maybank Foundation said, "It has been a difficult year for some of our communities recently. We all need to do what we can to reach out to the affected communities, especially for those who have lost their homes or had their lives disrupted due to the recent disasters.
"At times like these, we need to ensure that aid reaches the correct people at the correct time. We have seen MERCY Malaysia at work and we strongly believe that it is an ideal partner for us to channel aid to the affected communities," he added.
"In the region, one of the most horrifying disasters was super typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We were made aware that one of the affected communities was the Nasunugan Elementary School in Ormoc, Philippines, which we felt needed special assistance. Through our collaboration, we are hoping that our contribution would help MERCY Malaysia in further expanding their noble humanitarian services," he further said.
The Nasunugan Elementary School was one of the buildings that was affected by the Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Philippines.
MERCY Malaysia first started relief efforts there by distributing shelter repair kits to the villages in Nasunugan. This was then further extended by conducting rehabilitation and reconstruction program on the Nasunugan Elementary School.
