PALO ALTO, California – HP has announced that the HP Company Foundation has committed $50,000 to the relief efforts carried out by the Philippine Red Cross in providing assistance to those affected by Typhoon Bopha (Pablo), which caused extensive damage in Southern Philippines last December.

Additionally, HP will donate 100 laptops to NetHope. The notebooks will support NetHope member non-governmental organizations’ information and communication technology (ICT) needs while working in the Philippines.
