The MOL Group Cooperation for Soap Collection Project
The MOL Group has taken part in activities by NPO Happy Steps as part of a project initiated to donating soap to developing countries. MOL helped transport soap to East African port of Mombasa, which also serves as the gateway port to Uganda. Furthermore, Mitsui O.S.K. Passenger Line, Ltd. and MOL Ferry Co., Ltd. cooperated in providing discarded soap.
This project involves the donation of discarded soap by hotels in Japan. Happy Steps then donates the soap to orphanages and elementary school at the hand wash education. This project helps to improve sanitary conditions in Uganda.
