Lippstadt, November 14, 2013. The staff and management of the HELLA group have been following events in the Philippines with great sympathy after the devastating typhoon Haiyan and wish to convey their deep compassion for the people in the affected areas. The company will immediately provide a donation of 100,000 euros to the charity "Aktion Deutschland hilft", an alliance of German aid agencies.
HELLA has 66 employees in the Philippines based in Dasmariñas, near the capital Manila. This region was not affected by the effects of the typhoon. Despite this, the company is continuing to closely follow forecasts of further tropical storms which are currently threatening the islands.
