Dépèche transmise le 18 janvier 2010 par PRNewswire

HAIKOU, China, January 18 /PRNewswire/ -- At a ceremony held at its Haikou headquarters on Jan. 18, HNA Group donated RMB500,000 each to the China Police Martyrs and Heroes Foundation and the China Red Cross Society for post-earthquake relief/reconstruction in Haiti and to pay tribute to China's peacekeeping officers killed in Haiti. HNA Group is the first among Chinese enterprises to send condolences to the police officers killed while on a peacekeeping mission in Haiti. The Deputy Director of Hainan Provincial Public Security Department, Li Hong, Executive Vice President of Hainan Province Red Cross Society, Zhao Guowei, and HNA Group Chairman, Chen Feng, were among those in attendance.

Combining its experience from the Wenchuan earthquake, HNA Group mobilized resources as an "integrated modern service industry operator" by immediately learning about the conditions/needs of the disaster-struck area in Haiti to prepare relief supplies and ensure available transport capacity. The Group transported supplies and personnel, and expressed willingness to provide necessary assistance to local Chinese-funded organizations and overseas Chinese. HNA Group's aviation, logistics and other transportation businesses were actively in touch with the China Charity Federation and the Red Cross Society to ensure available transport capacity at a moment's notice. HNA Group's food catering business and commercial enterprises had also stored up foodstuff, drinks, tents, blankets, etc.

Chen Feng said that as a local enterprise in Hainan, HNA Group actively conveys Hainan's humanitarian spirit. This donation supports the Chinese government's participation in post-earthquake relief/reconstruction efforts in Haiti, and also is a tribute from the people of Hainan to China's peacekeeping officers killed in Haiti.

Hainan Airlines is the fourth-largest airline group in China's civil aviation industry and has extensive experience in earthquake relief. Since the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008, HNA Group completed a total of 254 earthquake relief flights (655 flight hours), during which it transported 1,100+ tonnes of supplies and nearly 4200 rescue workers. It was also the first mainland Chinese airline to carry out a direct-chartered cargo flight to Taiwan for disaster relief.

According to Zhao Guowei, taking the initiative to assume the State's responsibility, as HNA Group has, highlights "China's Love for All", and sets the example for Chinese enterprises to fulfil their social responsibilities and participate in building the country's image as a responsible great nation.
