The INSEAD Alumni Association has received the following appeal and we encourage you to donate…

Dear Fellow INSEAD Alumni:

Typhoon Haiyan – one of the most powerful weather phenomena ever observed – devastated the Philippines on the night of 8th November 2013.  More than 11.3 million people were affected and nearly 700,000 people were  displaced.  Many islands and cities are still inaccessible.

Humanitarian organisations have been on the ground for over two months in the Philippines, among them the International Federation of the Red Cross and the Philippine National Red Cross, whose emergency response teams are working to meet the needs of victims.

With the support of [pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”30%”]INSEAD’s MBA students, the INSEAD student club INDEVOR, INSEAD ENTRAIDE, and the INSEAD Social Innovation Centre, INSEAD is responding to the crisis by donating [/pullquote] INSEAD’s MBA students, the INSEAD student club INDEVOR, INSEAD ENTRAIDE, and the INSEAD Social Innovation Centre, INSEAD is responding to the crisis by donating to the Philippine Red Cross.
