A Panel of MOL's cutting-edge hybrid car carrier "Emerald Ace" ,which carried eight mobile library vehicles last year, was presented to South African Ambassador in Japan Her Excellency Mohau Pheko by MOL Senior Managing Executive Officer Takashi Kurauchi.

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. said it plans to assist nonprofit organization South Africa Primary Education Support Initiative (Sapesi-Japan) with the ocean transport of mobile library vehicles to the Republic of South Africa. This marks the fourth time since 2009 that MOL has contributed to this initiative.

MOL previously transported 32 vehicles, and in this phase, it will transport six more. Those will be transported by MOL's car carrier, Sunshine Ace, which departs Japan at the end of May, and is scheduled to arrive at the Port of Durban at the end of June.

On May 22, a ceremony for the departure of the six mobile library vehicles-donated from all over Japan-was held at the South African Embassy in Tokyo, with participants including South African Ambassador in Japan Her Excellency Mohau Pheko and MOL Senior Managing Executive Officer Takashi Kurauchi. The mobile libraries that played an important role in local communities in Japan will soon gain new lives in visiting elementary and junior high schools in South Africa and contributing to the education of both students and teachers.

Contribution to the United Nations (UN) Millennium Development Goals is one of the principles of MOL's social contribution activities. These goals aim for measurable targets such as achieving universal primary education and ensuring environmental sustainability by 2015.

MOL said it proactively undertakes social contribution activities that make use of its unique characteristics as a shipping company with a global network.
