NYK Group volunteers comprising current and former employees participated
in a series of support activities during the months of September through
November to assist in the revitalization of the area devastated by the 2011
Great East Japan Earthquake and ensuing tsunami.
As done in previous volunteer activities by NYK Group members, the 59
participants helped revitalize affected towns as part of community-based
urban development to restructure communities and cultivate local products.
Moreover, each volunteer gained insight into the current state of
reconstruction and the need for future support.
This volunteer program sent out four groups on four separate missions in
the cities of Kamaishi, Rikuzentakata, and Ofunato in Iwate prefecture.
Each mission is indicated below and was determined based on community needs
at the time.
NYK will continue its efforts to support those in need to fulfill the
group’s commitment to remaining a socially responsible corporation.
