IAG joins Typhoon Haiyan effort

IAG has pledged to match the sum donated by its 3,300-strong workforce in aid of the communities that have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

Until 18 December, employees can allocate a portion of their pay check to help survivors of the Philippines disaster that is thought to have affected more than 11 million people.

The business will match the total raised which will then be sent to the New Zealand Red Cross as one of several charities leading relief operations in badly affected Eastern Samar province.

Jacki Johnson, CEO of IAG NZ, said: “The tragic loss of lives and property in the Philippines is heartbreaking and impacts on so many people.

“With the purpose of helping people recover after unexpected loss, we want to make a contribution to the Philippines community that has lost so much, so we’ll be matching financially any donation made by our people to the NZ Red Cross.”
