MOL provides financial aid to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for the purchase of emergency supplies. In addition, MOL has provided free transport of such relief supplies between China and Dubai, U.A.E. The UNHCR, which is the United Nations’ refugee agency, was established to provide protection and support to refugees who have lost the protection of their own countries due to war or oppression. As an ocean shipping company that has a worldwide transport network, MOL will continue to act in accordance with humanitarian principles by supporting the UNCHR through the provision of free transportation and other means.
