MOL Raises Money for Victims of Japan Earthquake

Friday, May 13, 2011

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) reported that it has donated a total of about $.68m to the Japan Red Cross Society and Central Community Chest for the Great East Japan Earthquake relief efforts. MOL raised the donation among MOL Group executives and employees through a massive, group-wide effort to support victim relief and reconstruction of quake-stricken areas, in which many of them participated.

The company launched the fundraising drive within the group. The donation initiative started in Japan, but soon MOL Group subsidiaries and affiliates, ship management companies, business partners, and others around the world threw their support behind the effort, and eventually a total of 88 companies took part, including MOL, and the donation came to about $.68m. In addition, seven overseas group companies have donated separately through their local Red Cross organizations and other agencies.
The MOL Group pledges continued efforts toward reconstruction of the quake-stricken areas by providing vessels to transport aid supplies and other activities.
