Sandvik contributes disaster relief

The Sandvik Group is contributing SEK 250,000 in relief to the disaster-stricken areas of Southeast Asia.

The contribution will go to the Red Cross, one of the organizations that has local operations in the countries in question.

The company has also contacted the Red Cross to offer assistance in the form of other types of resources.

In India, Sandvik employees have donated a day's wages or the equivalent and the company has donated the corresponding amount to the government's National Relief Fund. The response was organized rapidly following deliberations with the union, which is also to contribute funds of its own.

In Singapore, employees have donated clothing, food and money. In Thailand, Sandvik employees have gone to hospitals to donate blood.

Sandvik employees in Sweden will also be given the opportunity to make donations toward reconstruction efforts. The collection procedure will be established at a meeting that is to be held on 3 January. The company will then match the amount accumulated in the account by a certain date, doubling the collection amount.

Local Sandvik operations in the stricken regions were not affected by the disaster. Nor has any information been received to date concerning missing or deceased employees who may have been vacationing in the area.
