Sulit.com.ph co-founders RJ David and Arianne David recently announced that company shareholder Naspers Ltd. of South Africahas made a $100,000 (P4.3 million) contribution to the Zuellig Family Foundation to deliver relief and support to Filipino families whose lives have been decimated by November’s typhoon.
The contribution has been made directly to the Zuellig Family Foundation under the stewardship of Chairman Robert Romulo, who was formerly a member of the Board of Directors for Naspers’ global subsidiary MIH. The donation is being made from the Naspers Office of the Chairman, with the hopes of providing some small comfort during such a difficult time for many Filipino families.
“I’m humbled to be entrusted by my friends and colleagues to be able to deliver relief to our Filipino families during their time of need,” said Romulo. “This act brings not only meaningful and needed financial resources to make a difference for so many people, but also demonstrates a degree of caring and humanity that lifts our spirits when we need it most.”
Sulit.com.ph co-founders RJ and Arianne David and their team have already mobilized their own efforts in raising money and providing supplies to families in Tacloban and Cebu where families of friends and employees lost their homes.
“I feel proud that our team, both our own local Filipino employees, as well as my colleagues from around the globe, have rallied to provide support to our Filipino citizens,” shared RJ David, chief executive and co-founder of Sulit.com.ph. “This will not bring back what has been lost, but we are pleased to be part of the relief effort that has brought so many people together.”
