UNIQLO Philippines helped families affected by the typhoons by providing food supplies, clean-up drives, reconstruction of damaged housing, and building preventative infrastructure in areas prone to flooding.
The project was introduced in November 2020, when Philippines was hit by super typhoons Rolly and Ulysses. Fast Retailing Co., Ltd. donated 1 million USD (approximately 48 million pesos) and UNIQLO Philippines provided 300,000 pieces of AIRism masks for the aid and protection of families displaced by the typhoons. In partnership with SM Foundation, Inc., the donation was initially used for immediate food assistance to evacuees.
In a statement, Masayoshi Nakamura, Chief Operating Officer of UNIQLO Philippines, said they have been grateful for the Filipino communities who embraced the company.
“We would like to show our appreciation by doing what we can to support relief and recovery efforts,” he added.
At least 32 ,000 families were given food supplies in Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Albay, Rizal, Marikina City, Bulacan, Isabela, and Cagayan in the past floods.
The company also provided construction materials to help more than 1,000 families rebuild their homes that were damaged by the typhoons.#
