Fuji  Xerox Singapore has joined the ranks of aid donors to Philippine victims of Typhoon Haiyan, pledging 10 million Japanese yen or S $ 125,000 to assist relief efforts in that country devastated last November 8  by a Category 5 typhoon, the world's strongest ever kind  of typhoon.

"Our hearts go to the people of the Philippines who have been impacted by the devastating typhoon," a press statement by Fuji Xerox Singapore said, quoting the company's CEO Bert Wong.

Donation Drive

Likewise, the statement said their company will hold on November 28 a donation drive among its employees with donations to be given to colleagues in the Philippines.

Fuji Xerox Singapore will match with company funds every dollar donated by its employees.

"Fuji Xerox has had a presence in the Philippines for more than 45 years and we are committed to supporting relief efforts," Wong said.

The statement clarified that while all Fuji Xerox personnel in the Philippines were now safe and had been accounted for, a number of them had their homes damaged by the super-typhoon.

All the company's facilities in the Philippines remain intact and are running, according to the statement.
