Primavera

Help for the victims of the Philippines typhoon

Makati City

Primavera received a dedicated donation of 150,000 EUR from the Robert Bosch GmbH. In parallel, a total amount of 12,000 EUR was received - with reference to this catastrophe - and increased by the board of the association by an additional 12,000 EUR. Thus we can participate in the reconstruction, in close cooperation with the local Bosch subsidiary, with 174,000 EUR in total.

It was decided, to support the project of "Habitat for Humanity", to build simple houses and community facilities on the islands of Leyte and Cebu. As things stand, with these resources we can afford six multi-purpose community centers, three school buildings and three libraries.

The project is supported from our side by Ms. Kristina Reyes, C/CCR-PH, with support from two Bosch employees who live on these islands. We will be informed on the progress of construction every two months. Further donations under the heading "Philippines typhoon" are very welcome and help to alleviate the suffering of the population.
