Apple will donate 8 million dollars for the victims of the earthquake in China

Apple has donated 50 million RMB (about 8 million dollars) to victims of the devastating earthquake that took place in Sichuan, China last weekend.


In addition to the donation, Apple updated the front page of its Web site in China, which expressed condolences of the company. Tech In Asia provided a translation of the message:

"At this difficult time, our hearts are with the victims of the Sichuan earthquake. Aside from the cash donation to help the affected people to tide over their difficulties, we are committed to providing new Apple devices to schools in the disaster area, and Apple employees in the locality are on stand-by at any time to help."

Donations during disasters are not uncommon for Apple. Previously, the company offered material assistance to the victims in some disasters.

In the last few months, Apple has tense relations with China, after the warranty policy for the iPhone has been criticized in this country. However, the tension was reduced in early April when Tim Cook, Apple's CEO wrote a letter to customers, which announced changes of the warranty policy.

The earthquake, which measured a magnitude of 6.6 to 7.0 points, struck Ya'an city in Sichuan on Saturday, claimed the lives of hundreds of people and caused widespread destruction.
