Donation to scholarship fund for orphans of fallen firefighters

Mitsui contributed a total of ¥65 million over the four years from 2012 to 2015 to a scholarship fund, established by Shoubou Ikueikai, a public interest incorporated foundation, for orphaned children of firefighters killed while responding to the Great East Japan Earthquake. Countless emergency responders affiliated with fire departments lost their lives in the line of duty while engaging in relief and rescue operations in the disaster zone in the immediate aftermath of the calamity, with many leaving behind children. This scholarship provides support for those children to help them achieve their dreams for the future and expand their potential.
As of May 2015, the total amount needed for the scholarship fund had been secured and Mitsui & Co. had successfully fulfilled its responsibilities in respect to the scholarship project.
