Chevron Corporation announced that it has contributed $1.5 million to the American Red Cross to provide disaster relief assistance to Philippine communities affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
“Chevron is committed to helping the people of the region begin to recover in the aftermath of this tragic event,” said Steve Green, Chevron vice president of Policy, Government and Public Affairs. “While Typhoon Haiyan has inflicted great damage to many local communities, we are certain that it will not break the spirit or resolve of the Philippine people.”
Typhoon Haiyan (known in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda) is the second-deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 2,427 people, but the death toll could rise to 10.000.
