KodakKodak employees worldwide have acted to provide support to survivors and recovery efforts in regions devastated by the recent earthquake and tsunami in Southeast Asia, making financial contributions to relief organizations. To reinforce their efforts, Eastman Kodak Company announced contributions of approximately $1.5 million in cash, services, and materials. Kodak digital imaging technologies will be employed in diagnostic services for injured survivors, and to help families attempt to locate missing loved ones from the December 26 disaster. Worldwide, Kodak's disaster relief support include a $1,000,000 corporate donation from Kodak to the American Red Cross' International Response Fund.
Furthermore it includes local donations totaling $50,000 (USD) from Kodak houses in Southeast Asia to regional relief efforts, supplies and equipment from Kodak Health Imaging provided to relief centers in affected areas to help diagnose survivors' injuries and customer and consumer support from Kodak Digital & Film Imaging Systems. Kodak will use imaging solutions and services to support the identification of those persons lost and missing from the disaster. In addition, some Kodak customers experienced significant property loss and damage to business operations. Support will be provided in the rebuilding of stores and resumption of operations.

The contributions from Health Imaging and Digital & Film Imaging Systems are valued in excess of $500,000.

"Many employees have already donated either cash or materials such as clothing, food and other essentials," said Karen Smith-Pilkington, chairman, Greater Asia Region, and a Kodak senior vice president. "Kodak India, for example, contributed to the Prime Minister's relief fund, and voluntary contributions from Kodak India employees are being coordinated and donated to the Tsunami Relief Fund."

"We're grateful that no Kodak employees or family members were lost in the disaster, but we're witnessing tremendous loss and suffering throughout the region," Smith-Pilkington said. "Kodak people closest to the region made the initial outreach. With our contributions of financial support and Kodak technologies, we are reinforcing their willingness to extend themselves in a time of epic destruction and need."

Kodak Thailand staff members have made financial contributions to the Red Cross. In addition, the company's Digital & Film Imaging Systems business has sent a photographer and Kodak Picture Maker G3 system to help forensic pathologists in Thailand identify victims.

The tsunami also impacted many people from Scandinavia. As a result, Kodak Nordic AB made a financial contribution to the Red Cross. Kodak's Health Imaging unit is providing support at the local level in the affected areas, with diagnostic imaging supplies and equipment for relief centers.

Individuals wishing to make contributions to the tsunami relief efforts may do so through the Red Cross. In the U.S., visit the American Red Cross web site at www.redcross.org.
