Moments that Matter: Motorola Solutions Foundation Supports Relief Efforts Toward Building Collapse in Savar
DHAKA, Bangladesh – February 20, 2014 – The Motorola Solutions Foundation, the charitable and philanthropic arm of Motorola Solutions Inc, has made a USD 15,000 donation to the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society (RCS) to support relief efforts in Dhaka which is recovering from the collapse of the Savar Building last year.
During the rush-hour morning of April 24 last year, the eight-storey Rana Plaza collapsed in Savar within the Greater Dhaka Area. Considered one of the deadliest industrial accidents in modern history, the disaster had left thousands dead and injured.
As recovery efforts continue, Motorola Solutions Foundation is extending its assistance through the RCS.
