JAL Group extends its deep condolences to the people affected by the earthquake on April 25, 2015 which has caused major damage in Nepal.
To assist the effort for quick recovery, we also ask for cooperation to JMB members to support the people in the affected areas by this earthquake through Charity Mile.

Enabling support to deliver 150 solar lights and 100 water filters.
Kopernik is a NPO that undertakes activities for "Connecting country to country," "Environmental conservation," "Improving sanitation and health in developing countries," (Safety and Security) and "Improving children's lives and expanding the opportunity to study" (Nurturing the next generation). These activities also resonate with the CSR activities of the JAL Group. Since 2013, we have been engaged in the Connecting People to People, Bridging Japan and the World Project to expand the impact of such activities through collaboration.
Considering the devastated situation caused by the Nepal Earthquake, JAL will support this year's Kopernik's activities by donating 200 solar lights to the victims of this earthquake.
We will be accepting Charity Miles from JAL Mileage Bank (JMB) members from 10:00 a.m. (Japan time), July 13, 2015 (Mon.) - 11:59 p.m. (Japan time), October 18, 2015 (Sun.). Charity Miles will be accepted in units of 3,000 miles.
The need for Water Filters and Solar Lights which can also be used as a "rechargeable mobile phone charger" is increasing in the devastated area affected by the Nepal Earthquake. By supporting the people by delivering these items, we can help improve the life of the people in Kathmandu, as well as the people living in the surrounding mountainous areas who are in need of light at night, communication lines, and safe drinking waters.
