Uniqlo donates $1M for PHL typhoon relief efforts

Japanese global apparel retailer Uniqlo on Friday said it is donating $1 million (around P48 million) for efforts to help families affected by Typhoon Rolly and Typhoon Ulysses in the Philippines.

Uniqlo, through its parent company Fast Retailing, will donate $1 million to the SM Foundation of the SM Group. The SM Group is the management partner of Uniqlo in the Philippines.

“The donation will be used to provide emergency food supplies and rebuild flooded housing, as well as build preventative infrastructure in areas susceptible to flooding,” the company said in a statement.

Uniqlo Philippines will donate 300,000 Airism masks to affected areas through the SM Foundation. The masks will be donated to evacuees in typhoon-hit areas in Bicol Region, Bulacan, Cagayan, Isabela, Pampanga, and Rizal provinces, as well as Marikina City.

“Uniqlo hopes for the speedy recovery of these regions and that the families affected by these disasters can return to their normal lives as soon as possible,” the company said.

Uniqlo operates 60 stores throughout the Philippines.
