EDMI employees initiated a fund drive to extend help to victims of the recent tropical storm Washi, locally known as Sendong, which ravaged the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in the Philippines.
The response both in cash and kind from EDMI offices in Singapore and Philippines has been overwhelming. A total of SGD 4,000.00 and PHP 8,000.00 were collected from Singapore and Philippine offices, respectively. Clothes, blankets, food, shoes and diapers were among the many items donated.
Typhoon Washi has left over 1,000 people killed and thousands more left homeless.
