Bayer Donates to Wildfire Relief

In the aftermath of devastating wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui, German pharmaceutical conglomerate Bayer has provided US$500,000 in relief.

Half of the donation has been made in cash; the other half as a donation of essential healthcare products.

The company, which has operated in Maui for 50 years, said it “stands in solidarity with those impacted and offers heartfelt condolences for the losses endured”.

To date, some 2,200 structures – most of them residential – have been listed as destroyed or damaged in the deadly wildfires, which ripped through Lahaina, Hawaii, in August. The death toll stands at 115.

Half of the donation has been made in cash; the other half as a donation of essential healthcare products.

Bayer notes that its employees in Hawaii on Maui, Molokai, and Oahu have also donated more than 1,000kg of essential supplies, including food, water and more. The pharma giant is also matching employee contributions through its Bayer Fund program.
