BENTONVILLE, Ark.–Wal-Mart has donated $1 million to the Red Cross Society of China for disaster relief to the victims of what’s being called the worst snowstorms in China in 50 years.
The storms have toppled most provinces in southern China, bringing road and air transport to a halt. What’s more, electricity, heat and water supplies have been disrupted.
Wal-Mart’s donation will be used for daily necessities for the victims of the snowstorms, the retailer said in a statement.
According to published reports, the storms have also held up product shipments from China to U.S retailers.
