SAIPAN – Mobil has donated US$20,000 to the American Red Cross' efforts in Saipan, to support the island's continuing recovery efforts following the devastating effects of Typhoon Soudelor.

The money will be going towards both short and long-term response programs, to tackle health issues and the continuing reconstruction of homes and key infrastructure, in partnership with the Red Cross and Long-Term Recovery Committee, said the Red Cross.

Mr. Charles Ewart, President of Mobil Oil Mariana Islands, Inc., presented the check to Mr. John Hirsh, Executive Director, American Red Cross (Northern Mariana Chapter), at the Red Cross' office in Saipan earlier today (23Sep).

At the informal presentation ceremony, Mr. Ewart, said: "Mobil is glad to be able to do our part for the Mariana Island community in their time of need.

The Red Cross has been working on various programs to support continuing recovery efforts, such as providing aid to vulnerable families, as well as working with schools to provide disaster preparedness totes for students. Apart from raising awareness of the importance of always being prepared, these totes will contain emergency supplies, and other critical items, for the students and their families."

He added: "Mobil's primary role is to provide reliable supplies of fuel to communities all around the world. To that end, our teams worked hard following Typhoon Soudelor, to overcome the challenges at our terminal, so that we could resume supplies of fuel to the service stations and the community.

I'm proud of the team of workers and employees at the Saipan terminal, and across our network here. Their commitment underlies Mobil's commitment, as a company, to our key role of providing fuel, and enabling daily lives."

In appreciation of the donation, Mr. Hirsh, said: "The American Red Cross continues to support recovery efforts that we expect will take some time. The impact of the typhoon has been wide-ranging.

We are pleased and proud that we've received the support of various organizations, including Mobil Oil Mariana Islands. The donation that they have made will go a long way to restore the lives of the various people impacted by the disaster."
