Pru Life UK shares clothing and supplies to Tacloban schools



In continuous support to the Department of Education’s Adopt-a-School Program, British life insurer Pru Life UK through its charitable arm, Prudence Foundation, turned over its donation of 1,102 school kits and Prudence Foundation shirts for school children in various public schools in typhoon-ravaged Leyte. Students from Concepcion Elementary and High School and Kang-iras Elementary School in Tacloban will each receive a school kit that includes a writing pad, pen and stickers featuring the characters of the Cha-Ching Money Smart Kids cartoon, the Company’s banner financial literacy program for children aged 7 to 12. By the end of February, Pru Life UK will have distributed a total of 4,300 shirts and 5,000 kits in response to the disruption of classes and loss of school materials due to the devastation caused by Typhoon ‘Yolanda’ (international name: Haiyan).

Currently, Pru Life UK is working with various international and local non-government organizations and corporate partners to help in the relief and reconstruction of affected communities as part of Prudence Foundation’s US$2 million pledge of assistance.
