NYK Group to Aid Victims of China's Sichuan Earthquake
May 10, 2013
The NYK Group has started to collect and match donations from executives and employees at companies throughout the group for those directly affected by the massive earthquake in China's Sichuan province on April 20.
NYK has deep compassion for those harmed by this natural disaster and offers its wishes for a quick recovery.
The NYK Group established the NYK Group–JPF Joint Aid Supplies Transportation Projects with Japan Platform (JPF)* in 2004 to support the quick recovery of areas impacted by disasters, and free ocean transport has since been arranged based on requests by JPF.
In the hopes of aiding victims of disasters through our supportive action, NYK will continue its efforts to be proactively involved in contributing to society as a good corporate citizen.
*Japan Platform (JPF)
An international humanitarian assistance organization founded to provide quick and effective emergency relief during natural disasters and refugee situations. JPF activities are carried out in partnership with NGOs, the Japanese government, and the business community, all working together to draw on the resources and unique features of each sector.
