Together with extending our heartfelt sympathies to all those who suffered in the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster of March 11, 2011, we are praying that the disaster locations will be reconstructed as quickly as is humanly possible.
Hitachi Group is engaged in aid activities with the aim of reconstructing the disaster-affected regions. In order to provide relief to all of those who were affected by the disaster and help with reconstruction of the disaster locations, Hitachi Group Companies have together provided support worth about 1 billion yen, including donations of flat-panel TVs, dry-sell batteries and Disaster Victim Support Systems for municipalities, to aid victims of the disaster and to assist with recovery. We have also opened up company housing in the Tokyo area to disaster victims. We will continue to extend rapid support to help those in disaster areas.
