LG donates $500,000 to Red Cross PH to aid Yolanda victims, will install solar panels too

LG Electronics has pledged to support the distraught victims of the severe Yolanda typhoon by giving a cash donation of $500,000 (approximately P22 million) which was coursed through Philippine Red Cross.


LG Electronics Philippines managing director Sung Woo Nam (right) presents $500,000 check to Philippine Red Cross chairman and chief executive officer Richard Gordon (left) signifying support to victims of super typhoon Yolanda.

In addition to that, LG electronics also committed to install its Solar Power System worth $100,000 (approximately PHP 4.3 million) in major evacuation centers to address the issue of electricity shortage. Solar power generation is one of the most environment-friendly renewable sources of electricity. Upon installation, LG Solar Panels can directly convert sunlight to electricity, while the accompanying charge controller, batteries, inverter, and loads will be able to sustain it. This activity will be done in cooperation with the Department of Energy.

On top of that, LG employees have made their own individual contributions and raised a total of $10,000.


LG will install solar panels such as these ones found in Palawan City Hall in major evacuation centers affected by Typhoon Yolanda.

When the overwhelming situation stabilizes, LG will undergo community rehabilitation with “œLG Service Camp”, an annual CSR program dedicated to victims of calamities. Now on its third year, LG Service Camp will offer free appliance and mobile phone cleaning and repair to all affected LG customers. LG employee volunteers will also extend services to Medical Missions and free Labada Days. Donations of LG TVs and washing machines to evacuation centers will help make the evacuees’ stay more comfortable while waiting for their homes to be restored.

“œTyphoon Yolanda is said to be the strongest and most catastrophic typhoon in the world for 2013,” Sung Woo Nam, managing director of LG Electronics Philippines, stated. “œIt has affected thousands of Filipinos and caused them insurmountable levels of distress. As a unified corporation and community, we will do all we can to help them rise above this adversity.”
