Manulife donates CAD$100,000 to support relief efforts in the Philippines

To support communities impacted by the devastation caused by Super Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai), Manulife announced that it will donate CAD 100,000 (approximately PHP4 million) to two aid organizations in the Philippines:

  CAD$50,000 to ACCORD, a national non-profit civil society organization, working with vulnerable communities in the Philippines on resilience-building; and CAD$50,000 to the Philippine Red Cross, to support its relief efforts, including food trucks and evacuation sites.

“Typhoon Odette has caused destruction of catastrophic scale in various parts of the country. We hope Manulife’s relief efforts for reconstruction and recovery can contribute to mitigating the typhoon’s impact on many Filipinos’ lives, property, and sources of livelihood,” said Richard Bates, President and CEO, Manulife Philippines. “In cooperation with ACCORD and the Philippine Red Cross, we aim to support their immediate needs on the ground, protect their health and safety, and help them bounce back from this challenging time.”

To assist Manulife customers affected by Typhoon Odette, Manulife Philippines and Manulife China Bank Life recently extended a premium payment grace period of 90 calendar days for policies with due dates from December 17, 2021 to January 31, 2022. The extension covers customers residing in Bohol Province, Butuan City, Cebu Province, Ormoc City and Tacloban City in Leyte Province, Surigao del Norte, and Palawan. 

In addition to these donations and customer supports, Manulife activated its employee giving program to further enable its global team to support affected communities.
