Dow offers $5M in tsunami aid

Midland, Michigan-The Dow Chemical Co says it will contribute $5 million to the relief efforts underway for victims of the recent earthquake and subsequent tsunamis in Southeast Asia and the Indian sub-continent.In making the announcement, Andrew Liveris, Dow president and chief executive officer, said, “As we’ve all seen, the reports and images from the tsunami-stricken regions in Southeast Asia and the Indian sub-continent are at once incomprehensible and heart-breaking. At times like these, we all struggle to come up with meaningful ways to contribute and help those who have lost so much.”Dow is responding to the disaster with a pledge of $5 million in aid, which includes:• A $1 million monetary contribution to the American Red Cross International Response Fund, which is dedicated to providing immediate, vital help to the victims in need;• Up to $1 million in matching individual contributions from Dow’s more than 40 000 employees and 70 000 retirees around the world; and• An additional $3 million in the form of vital products, technology and funds to assist in the longer-term reconstruction efforts. Dow adds that it will work with governments, agencies and other interested parties in the affected areas to determine how best to provide support.”
