Bayer U.S. Employee Contributions For Tsunami Relief Result In More Than A Quarter Of A Million Dollars
Three weeks after Bayer Corporation announced it established a tsunami relief effort and would match employee donations across the United States dollar for dollar from its Foundation, $260,000 was contributed to Save the Children.
“Bayer employees always step up in times of need,” said Attila Molnar, Bayer Corporation’s president and CEO. “But I’m particularly gratified by this outpouring of support, and I’m pleased to be able to provide our contribution to Save the Children, whose work is so critical.”
Bayer’s donation will help Save the Children carry out long-term rebuilding and recovery projects, including job skills training, loan assistance, repairing and rebuilding of schools, homes and health centers, and providing emotional support for trauma victims.
"We are grateful for the generous support from Bayer Corporation employees for our relief and recovery efforts in the areas affected by the recent earthquake and tsunami. Our emphasis is to bring immediate and lasting, positive change to children affected by this disaster,” said Charles MacCormack, president and CEO, Save the Children.
