JCB Donates $150,000 Worth of Diggers to Haiti Quake Disaster
JCB is donating diggers worth $150,000 to help the disaster relief effort
in Haiti, following the devastating earthquake that is feared to have
killed tens of thousands of people.
The gift of two 3CX backhoe loaders is being made by JCB Chairman
Sir Anthony Bamford in response to an appeal from relief agencies for
foreign aid.
The machines are being made available to the US Government, which is
taking a leading role in the relief effort on the Caribbean island, which
was recently hit by an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale.
Sir Anthony Bamford said: “The scale of the devastation is unimaginable
and it’s heart-rending to see the human suffering caused by the disaster.
There is clearly a lack of equipment on the island and I hope our gift of
JCB machines will help in some small way to alleviate that suffering and
in the rebuilding in the aftermath of the earthquake.”
The contribution to the aid effort follows a series of other JCB machinery
donations in recent years to other parts of the world hit by natural
disasters, including the 2008 earthquake in Sichuan province in China,
when six backhoe loaders worth over $600,000 and a team of operators
were sent from the company’s factory in Shanghai to help the clear-up
effort in the region.
JCB also donated machines worth more than £1 million to help in the
aftermath of the Asian Tsunami in 2004, with JCB diggers deployed to
Thailand, southern India, Sri Lanka and Indonesia.
Last year the company donated an excavator and a backhoe loader
worth $250,000 to help the disaster relief effort in the city of Padang
following the devastating earthquake that struck off the Indonesian
island of Sumatra.
