FedEx delivers aid to earthquake affected Kumamoto, Japan
May 25, 2016: FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, supported relief efforts for people forced to evacuate from areas affected by the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake by assisting locally transporting supplies and providing a cash donation.
FedEx worked in conjunction with Second Harvest Japan, a non-profit organisation and covered the logistics procedures and transportation costs to move relief supplies including bottled water from the NPOs temporary storage facility in Kagoshima City to the Kario district in Aso City, Kumamoto Prefecture.
The water will be distributed to residents in the area and stocked by Second Harvest Japan to prepare against a possible secondary disaster, a heightened concern due to the upcoming rainy season.
FedEx in the US has also donated $25,000 in cash to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) to support relief activities in the impacted areas.
“FedEx is applying its expertise and experience as a cargo transport specialist and working together with a number of NPOs to provide humanitarian assistance wherever it is needed. Through our support, we hope to aid the people impacted by this disaster return to their normal lives as soon as possible,” said Masamichi Ujiie, regional vice president, North Pacific, FedEx Express.
