Movaya Update - China Earthquake

Dear Movaya Friends,

As you know, a major earthquake struck the Sichuan Province of China on Monday, May 12th at 2:30pm local time. Some of you may also be aware that Movaya has a development office in Chengdu, which houses 15 employees and is overseen by Stanley Wang, a former resident of Chengdu and Movaya’s co-founder and CTO. The epicenter of the earthquake was about 60 miles Northwest of Chengdu.



Movaya Chengdu Team


Miraculously, all of our employees were unharmed in this tragedy and there will be limited business impact. Sadly, this cannot be said of many other businesses and people, many of whom have lost their businesses, their homes and their loved ones. The death toll is already estimated at exceeding 13,000 and the numbers will surely go up based on the information we're reading online as well as info. we’re getting from our China team. Our hearts go out to them during this time of need.

I want to thank those of you who already sent notes to us checking in on our team and also let you know that if you’re interested in helping out with relief efforts, you can donate through MercyCorps: http://www.mercycorps.org/ or The Red Cross: http://www.redcross.org/

Sincerely,

Phil
