Hyundai Grants $200,000 to St John

Hyundai Grants $200,000 to St JohnA car manufacturing Company, Hyundai, has granted $200,000 to St John after the February 22 earthquake at Christchurch. The grant would help St John build a new infrastructure. In addition to the donation, the car Company has also given a new van and two four-wheel-drives on a long-term loan to St John.

Half of the amount of donation would be given by Hyundai Motor Company in South Korea and the other half from its dealerships in New Zealand.

Tom Ruddenklau, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai New Zealand, said that the Company wanted to help the victims of earthquake and that is why they have granted the money.

James Wood, Chief Executive of St John, says that St John is currently operating in a very difficult situation like many other residents and businesses hit by the quake. He added that much of their infrastructure has been destroyed and the donation given by Hyundai would help them in building a new infrastructure in Christchurch.
