Chubb Charitable Foundation completes grants to support All Hands and Hearts initiatives in Asia Pacific


SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 17
September 2020 – The
Chubb Charitable Foundation
announced today that it has completed two grants to All
Hands and Hearts
, an organization which
addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural
disasters around the world.

The Foundation’s grant will be channelled towards two initiatives in the
Asia Pacific, namely the Philippines Typhoon Mangkhut Relief and Australia
Bushfire Relief. In the Philippines, the Foundation’s grant of US$10,000 focuses
on two primary schools which accommodate more than 500 students aged 6-12 years
old. The schools are located in the Philippines’ northern Cagayan province,
which sustained destructive impacts of Typhoon Mangkhut in 2018. For Australia, the Foundation’s US$10,000 grant will
be used for environmental protection and livelihood support in communities
recovering from the combined impacts of the 2019 bushfires and COVID-19.

“We are impressed by All Hands and Hearts’ action-oriented philosophy to
natural disasters, which comprises response, recovery, resilience and renewal.
Through their active engagement with the community and volunteers, they get
straight to what the community needs most post-disaster while laying the
foundation for it to emerge stronger in the future. All Hands and Hearts’
efforts in the Philippines and Australia align well with the Chubb Charitable Foundation’s
focus on education as well as the environment and will go a long way towards making
a real difference in the respective communities.” said Paul McNamee, Regional
President for Chubb in Asia Pacific.

“All Hands and Hearts seeks to address the greatest
needs in communities devastated by natural disasters. With the generous support
of the Chubb Charitable Foundation, children in the Philippines have the chance
to receive a safe education in schools resilient to future disasters, as well
as access to clean drinking water, sufficient toilets and handwashing stations,
and outdoor play areas. In Australia, once COVID-19 restrictions allow, we plan
to support communities affected by the bushfires and further impacted by the
COVID-19 crisis. We are truly grateful for the Chubb Charitable Foundation’s
support for the long-term recovery of these communities that otherwise may not
receive the support they require,” said Bruce Linton, Chief Development Officer
for All Hands and Hearts.
