Environment group Haribon Foundation has named Hyundai Asia Resources (HARI) as the highest single donor to the organization's reforestation efforts.
HARI, official distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Philippines, planted 15,000 tree seedlings and made a donation to reforest a portion of Brgy. Cuyambay in Tanay, Rizal.
Hyundai planted the trees in two tranches--August 26 and September 3, 2011. With each HARI volunteer planting 33 trees, 12 hectares that was devastated by Typhoon Ondoy was covered with trees.
"We celebrate our partnership with Haribon and thank them for having given Hyundai this opportunity to serve our country in an enduring way," HARI president Maria Fe Perez-Agudo said.
