Huawei is a believer in giving back to the local communities in which it operates. As a member of local communities, we are committed to charitable efforts and take decisive actions to make positive contributions to the charity, education, disaster relief and environmental protection of local communities.
Case: Scholarship programs in China
In China, Huawei has established scholarship funds to support the development of education and encourage students and teachers who have made outstanding achievements in teaching and scientific development. In 2009, Huawei scholarships included 33 domestic universities totalling CNY 2.09 million, and in 2010 included 40 domestic universities totalling CNY 2.47 million.
Case: Donations for Disaster Relief
In 2010, Huawei donated cash and materials totaling USD 1,055,000 for flood victims in Venezuela, Columbia, and Mexico through local foundations that purchased emergency materials and helped local residents recover from the flood.
Case: Communications Assurance after the Earthquake in Chile
On February 27, 2010, an earthquake measuring 8.8 struck Chile. After the earthquake, some services of local customers were disrupted as the equipment was destroyed. Huawei immediately sent engineers to the affected cities to repair sites and equipment, with a high risk of aftershocks and while water and power supplies were off. After days of hard work, local telecom services were restored.
