Join Hands for the Early Recovery of Quake-hit Areas

Aeon donated in total of 276,069,640 yen to Kumamoto Prefecture as emergency disaster relief funds (first campaign) for The 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake.

We extend our deepest sympathies to all those affected by the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake. Aeon held the first fund-raising campaign starting April 14 at approximately 7,000 Group stores and offices across Japan. In total, 176,069,640 yen was raised by April 24. Combined with the emergency disaster relief funds of 100 million yen from Aeon Co., Ltd., the total of 276,069,640 yen was presented to Kumamoto Prefecture on May 3.
We sincerely thank the many people who warmly supported the fund-raising campaign. Based on the Comprehensive Partnership Agreements with Kumamoto Prefecture including contribution to the regional development and cooperation in times of disasters, immediately after the earthquake, Aeon has delivered relief supplies including foods and daily necessities in response to the request from the local governments. Additionally, the Aeon Group has engaged in various kinds of support including deployment of Aeon Bank mobile ATM and the care of pets (dogs and cats) at the stores in the disaster-affected areas by leveraging its comprehensive capabilities. Aeon also holds the second fund-raising campaign from April 25 to May 31. Hand in hand with customers, we continue to do our utmost for the early recovery and restoration of the disaster-affected areas.
