Apple donates to charity
Last week Germany experienced an incredible disaster due to torrential rains and floods. The states of North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Bavaria were particularly hard hit. The flood destroyed homes, bridges, roads, railways, and other important infrastructure. In many small towns, more than 1,300 people were lost because many residents were surprised by the floods. The federal government has already announced rapid financial assistance and the federal government would like to support the federal states in the reconstruction.
On Saturday, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced on Twitter that Apple plans to make donations to support aid organizations in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. The three countries are greatly affected by floods caused by rainfall and devastating floods. Reconstruction will take years and billions.
In the past, the company has already donated money to combat the consequences of disasters such as the California wildfires and financially supported organizations in Texas during sub-zero temperatures in February.
Our hearts go out to all those affected by the devastating floods across Germany, Belgium and Western Europe. Apple will donate to support relief efforts.
