MOL’s ” We love Mauritius” relief activities on the Wakashio Grounding / Oil Spill Incident

On Friday, October 16, and Monday, 26th, MOL’s original T-shirts and facemasks, were distributed at the oil spill cleanup site. The T-shirt distribution was based on a proposal from local people after members of the MOL-dispatched team met and exchanged opinions with many residents and groups. The T-shirts are mainly for local citizens, including fishermen who are involved in the cleanup work, to wear as the inner layer of their personal protective equipment (PPE).
The design was selected from among ideas submitted through an MOL internal process in September, and we entrusted a local company in Mauritius with production and delivery. Then all the team members visited the cleanup site to distribute the items.
At the event, the team leader introduced the company, explained the intent of the distribution, and then handed out the unique T-shirts and cloth face masks to many appreciative recipients. The reviews received from local people regarding the design of the blue and white T-shirts were exceptionally good. The colors were determined after consultation with the local company about local people’s favorite colors. The site was bustling as some cleanup workers changed into their new T-shirts, and some wanted to save the shirts for their families.
This is a small initiative, but MOL will keep doing their best with other local dispatched teams to conduct activities that convey MOL’s wishes directly to local residents.

The copy on T-shirts says “We love Mauritius” with “M” in the colors of national flag of Mauritius. “Blue” out of four colors of the flag is said to be representing the Indian Ocean.
