Additional Donation in Response to the Widening Impact of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
We at Recruit Holdings wish to extend our deepest sympathies to everyone affected by the worldwide novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We would also like to express our sincerest respect and admiration for the healthcare practitioners, government representatives, and to all those who are active, day and night on the front lines of crisis response.
In February of this year, the Recruit Group made a relief fund donation to the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Japan to aid those in the People's Republic of China affected by COVID-19.
In addition to that, we are announcing a donation of $500,000 to the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund; a fund jointly launched by the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Foundation, and the Swiss Philanthropy Foundation to aid countries in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, in response to the ongoing worldwide spread of COVID-19.
We continue to wish for the early recovery of those affected by COVID-19 and to the end of this pandemic around the world.
