Helping communities recover and rebuild
Of everything that's needed after a disaster, we believe the commitment to make a difference is most important.
Major natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes can overwhelm communities or entire countries. Our aid and dedicated volunteers have helped people, nonprofits, and governments persevere when catastrophe strikes. We not only work to solve immediate challenges, but also support recovery efforts in the difficult weeks, months, and years that follow.
To bring relief to people around the world, our employees, company, and nonprofit HP Company Foundation dig deep to contribute services and skills, along with financial support and technology. We make the most of our resources by working with international nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), including Save the Children, the American Red Cross, and Doctors Without Borders.
HP and our employees also supported the aid efforts in Haiti through donations. Within 48 hours of the quake, we pledged $750,000 USD to the American Red Cross and other organizations. HP employees raised another $250,000 USD as the relief efforts continued.
In late 2009, we stepped in when floods in India left an estimated 3.1 million people, including tens of thousands of children, struggling to meet their most basic needs. HP employees traveled to villages in the flooded area, where they worked with the aid organization Save the Children and local partners. HP volunteers delivered mosquito nets, soap, toothpaste, medicine, and other supplies, and also organized fun activities for the children, offering a positive distraction from the devastation.
On the ground and behind the scenes, we rise to the enormous challenges that follow natural disasters. With our expertise, global reach, committed people, and technology, we help communities make huge strides toward recovery.
