Welcome to the Ford Motor Company Fund disaster relief site, in partnership with GlobalGiving. As part of our commitment to our local communities, Ford invites employees to join us in helping with the disaster recovery efforts taking place in China.
Changan Ford would like to extend our heart felt sympathy, condolences and support to the people in Lushan, Ya’an, whose lives have been so terribly and sadly impacted by the tragic events that have taken place as a result of the earthquake on April 20th.
CAF has acted swiftly on a decision to donate 3,000,000 RMB immediately to support the rescue efforts in the disaster area. In addition we are working with all CAF employee's, our labour union and our dealers to identify further support actions which can be taken to further support the relief initiatives that are already taking place. We will continue to work and coordinate our efforts with the local authorities to ensure we are supporting the relief efforts in the best possible way.
Following a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck the Sichuan province on April 20th, GlobalGiving is supporting the following organizations to provide emergency assistance and long-term relief to those in need.
