In November 2013, Typhoon "Yolanda" hit the Philippines, causing enormous damage. The HOYA Group has multiple sites in the Philippines, with over 2,000 local employees. Fortunately, there was no human damage within the Group, and each of our sites escaped serious damage.

Immediately HOYA Group gathered donations from employees to support the affected area. Approximately ¥7,000,000 (about 70,000 USD) was collected from around the world, and donated to the Red Cross and other appropriate organizations. In addition, HOYA Corporation provided a matching donation of ¥10,000,000 (about 100,000 USD) for the rebuilding of damaged schools.

In June this year, the ground breaking ceremony was conducted at Tabunan National High School in Borbon, northern part of Cebu Island, and construction of the school building was begun. In September, the school building for Matlang Elementary School on western Leyte Island, which had received the greatest damage, was completed, and the inauguration ceremony was conducted. The 3-classroom building was fully equipped with large blackboards and school desks with tables made locally from mahogany, and can accommodate up to 130 students.

HOYA will continue to contribute to the local community as a good corporate citizen, and implement various types of initiative.
