BASF SE has donated €300,000 ($403,000) to the relief effort in the Philippines. The funds will support the disaster relief activities of two international agencies, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and Unicef.

The donation will be used to deploy emergency food supplies, therapeutic food for children, health kits, water and hygiene kits.

Martin Brudermüller, BASF's vice-chairman for the Asia Pacific region, said: "Following the devastating effects of Typhoon Haiyan, our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Fortunately, all employees of BASF and BASF sites in the Philippines are safe.

"We aim to support the recovery efforts in the Philippines through rapid relief measures. We also encourage our employees to show their concern through individual donations."
