Due to the onslaught of typhoon Haiyan (local name: Yolanda), luxury hotel in Manila, Sofitel Philippine Plaza,  a unique 5 star luxury hotel in Manila launched an online donation drive for the families and victims of the devastating event.

More than a week ago, the Philippines has been ravaged by one of the worst disasters ever recorded in recent history, destroying shelters, demolishing livelihood, killing thousands and displacing countless more. With the enormous storm surge and massive flooding, it is estimated that more than 2.1 million families or 9.3 million individuals have been affected by super typhoon. The amplitude of the devastation is getting bigger and bigger as authorities assess areas affected by the horrifying storm surge.

In line with Accor and Sofitel luxury hotelscorporate social responsibility, Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila aims to raise PHP 5 Million for this cause. Currently, all Sofitel Ambassadors in Manila are also donating cash and preparing relief goods to deliver to legitimate foundations and designated government agencies by end of this week. And to further assist the victims of this horrific tragedy, the only French luxury hotel in Manila also launches an international fundraising campaign to solicit donations from kindhearted individuals from all over the world which could help raise funds that will help to deliver relief goods to the provinces ravaged by monstrous storm surge and massive flooding.

The huge challenge now is to assist these affected provinces to recuperate from such destruction and to provide all the victims with basic necessities like food, water, medicine, clothing and shelter. Help rebuild homes and send basic goods to the super typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines.
