Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL)’s president, Koichi Muto, announced plans to make a donation of $30,000 to aid afflicted people of Typhoon Haiyen, which devastated the central Philippines.

The main portion of MOL’s donation will go to afflicted people on the island of Leyte, through its group company Magsaysay MOL Marine, Inc. The company is planning other relief efforts as the situation unfolds.

MOL has built a deep relationship with the nation as many Filipino seafarers serve aboard MOL Group vessels, and established a maritime training center there.

To assist afflicted people of Typhoon Fengshen in June 2008, which caused severe damage to the nation, Ketsana in September 2009 (Luzon), and Washi in December 2011 (Mindanao), MOL made monetary donations and provided ocean transport of emergency relief supplies, and MOL seafarers and Magsaysay-MOL employees conducted volunteer activities.

The MOL Group hopes afflicted people will be able to return to normal life as soon as possible, and pledges a range of ongoing measures to support relief efforts.
