For damage caused by Typhoon Pablo that hit the southern Philippine island of Mindanao, Marubeni Corporation of Japan has decided to make a contribution of 10 million Japanese yen (Php4.96 million) immediately.
Typhoon Pablo, one of the most severe weather disturbances that struck Mindanao in recent history, caused massive damage to livelihood and properties and has left hundreds of people either dead or still missing. Through its contribution, Marubeni is earnestly hoping for the rescue of as many victims as possible and for the speedy progress in recovery and reconstruction operations.
Earlier this year, the company also donated to calamity victims of Typhoon Sendong in Mindanao and the southwest monsoon (Habagat) in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
Marubeni began operations in the Philippines in 1909. At present, the company has investments in power generation, transportation, industrial estate and construction machinery.
