GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- During this time of year, full of gift-giving and celebrating with loved ones, we must remember those affected by the horrible disaster in the Philippines. As a strong nation constantly impaired by natural disasters, the destruction of Typhoon Haiyan seems to be measured as the worst. Comprehending the impact a simple gift can have on those who have lost so much, Investors Trust Assurance SPC (“ITA”) is donating PHP ₱450,000 to the aid organization, World Vision, to provide emergency relief supplies to the people suffering in the Philippines.

“Especially during this time of year, it is unmeasurable to understand the devastation many people have faced and continue to face on the other side of the world,” said Managing Director, William Zelaya.

While relief efforts have been underway since the storm hit on November 8th, long-term aid is imperative to rebuild the destruction of Haiyan. The typhoon damaged millions of dollars’ worth of crops and infrastructure. It has destroyed half-a-million homes and displaced thousands of locals. As progress continues and rescue efforts are reaching the survivors, the catastrophic damage to crops and infrastructure will need on-going support and funding for economic relief.

We have chosen to partner, once again, with World Vision in their support efforts in the Philippines. Previous partnerships with World Vision have proven to be successful, thus impacting our confidence in the collaborated mission to bring hope to those in affected areas.

"World Vision is grateful for the ongoing partnership with ITA," said Gary Kovar, World Vision's Senior Area Director in the southeastern U.S. "Our partners are an incredibly valuable part of our emergency response work in the Philippines and around the world - we couldn't do this work without their support."
