Wolters Kluwer, a leading global information services and publishing company, presented today a company-wide donation to the Red Cross Society of China in support of relief efforts following the earthquake in south-west China. The donation was presented by David Lampert, CEO Wolters Kluwer Asia Pacific, to the Red Cross Society of China’s director, Wang Shitao, in Beijing, China.
The company-wide donation campaign was set up following a local employee initiative at the Wolters Kluwer offices in China, in response to the earthquake that struck the Sichuan Province earlier in May.
Together with employees in China and worldwide, the company donated US $110,000 (RMB 762,300) to the Red Cross Society of China today.
The employee donation campaign will continue until the end of June. An additional donation will be made to the Red Cross Society of China in July.
