MOL Transports Clothing Donations for Tanzania Children

Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) announced that the company is joining the “With All Our Hearts*1” international contribution project, to recycle children’s clothing, and will assist with transportation of the clothing. The project is sponsored by Japan’s Ministry of Justice.

This project aims to donate second-hand children’s clothing collected at 150 Miki House Co., Ltd. stores throughout Japan. The items will be washed, sorted, repaired, and packaged by female inmates at the Mine Rehabilitation Program Center and distributed to children in Tanzania, where the Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP) supports health- and hygiene-related initiatives. MOL, one of eight private companies and organizations backing the project, will provide a container and transport the clothing from Japan to Tanzania in March 2011.
