  • This is the fourth time MOL has teamed up with Japanese wheelchair charity since 2010.
  • Ninety wheelchairs arrived at Manila on January 10, where they were distributed to needy children.
  • CEO: MOL makes social contribution activities that are unique to an ocean transport company with a global network.

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) has received a letter of appreciation from the Jesus V. Del Rosario Foundation, Inc. for providing ocean transport of used wheelchairs for children in the Philippines.

The letter was presented at a February 9 ceremony in Manila marking the donation of the wheelchairs by the non-profit organization The Volunteers Group to Send Wheelchairs to Overseas Children. This is the fourth time MOL has teamed up with the non-profit organization since 2010.

The containership, loaded with a total of 90 wheelchairs, left the Port of Yokohama on December 29, 2015, and on January 10 of this year, arrived at Manila, where the wheelchairs were distributed to needy children.

At the ceremony on February 9, foundation head Jaime C. Del Rosario presented MOL with a letter of appreciation, saying, “We understand that you have contributed to our activity by providing free ocean transport of wheelchairs. I hope for your continued support to this program for the physically challenged children in the Philippines.”

“MOL takes a proactive stance in social contribution activities that are unique to an ocean transport company with a global network,” said MOL president and CEO Junichiro Ikeda.

The Jesus V. Del Rosario Foundation is headquartered in Makati City, the Philippines. The Volunteers Group to Send Wheelchairs to Overseas Children is chaired by Hirokazu Morita and is headquartered in Tokyo.
