ASCP Supports Colleagues in the Philippines Affected by Typhoon and Earthquake
ASCP expresses our heartfelt condolences to the people affected by Typhoon Haiyan and the earthquake that occurred in its aftermath in the Philippines. We share their grief and stand with them in solidarity during this trying time.
We urge you—our members—around the globe to donate now to the ASCP-PAMET USA, Inc. Give a Hand, Take a Hand Philippines Relief Fund. A suggested donation is $10, although donations in any amount are most appreciated. Your donation is 100 percent tax deductible and will entirely go to rebuild schools for laboratory professionals.
