Symrise Funds School In China’s Earthquake Zone

August 6, 2008

CHINA: Symrise, Holzminden, Germany, is offering some relief for those affected by the earthquake in China by funding a school in cooperation with Chinese NGO China Youth and Development Fund.

Symrise’s executive board has donated €50,000 to build a “Symrise School of Hope,” which will offer 20 classrooms and space for 500 students and will be used for approximately two to five years until Chinese authorities have built official school buildings again.

To ensure that the project proceeds smoothly, Symrise will work on-site with an experienced NGO, the China Youth and Development Fund (CYDF) and local authorities. Symrise China will develop long-term relations with the school and continue playing an active role in the project.

“China is more than just one of our most important markets—it’s much more than that,” said Thomas Dressler, regional president, scent and care, Asia Pacific, regarding Symrise’s involvement in Sichuan. “Our clients and all of the people here have always been extremely accommodating and have treated us with openness and respect. Now we have a chance to give something back.”

Another fund drive among Symrise employees in China, Singapore and Indonesia has doubled the amount it has raised—for a total of €13,000—thanks to dollar-for-dollar matching contributions from company management. These funds will go to Project Hope Disaster Relief, which likewise provides local support for victims and survivors of the earthquake. This aid project is also being coordinated by CYDF.
