|Support for Refugees International Japan|
Supporting activities to help people build a better world.
Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. and Shell Chemicals Japan Ltd. have been supporting the activities of Refugees International Japan (R.I. Japan) for 24 years by donating office space for its operations.
|R.I. Japan is a non-profit organization, which was established in Tokyo in 1979 with the aim of working to improve the lives of refugees worldwide. The organization, managed entirely by volunteers, has been continuously providing support to refugees were forced to leave their own country due to various reasons, such as political, racial or religious reasons. |
R.I. Japan derives its total financial support from fundraising activities and donations. One of their major fundraising events is pictured here.
Greeting Card Sales
|Selling greeting cards is one of RIJ's core fundraising activities. Every year they produce beautiful, high quality Holiday Greeting Cards for both corporate and individual use. The generous donation of copyrights from artists and museums, and donated paper and design services, allow them to use the great majority of proceeds from their card sales for the benefit of refugees throughout the world.|
10 cards and envelopes per pack ¥1,800
Purchases of 30 packs or more, the discount price will be 1,600 yen/pack
Light Up the Life of a Refugee Child
|Every year in December, R.I. Japan sets up a huge Christmas tree, named “Tree of Love,” in the Marunouchi North Exit of Tokyo station and holds a ceremony of “Light Up the Life of a Refugee Child” to light up the tree with over 4,000 illuminations. |
During this one-week charity event, R.I. Japan hosts musical performances and sells hand-made crafts. Donation and sales generated through this event are used to help improve the lives of refugees.
The hand-made crafts
|The hand-made crafts sold by R. I. Japan are made in refugee camps in Thailand by refugees from Laos. This support from R.I. Japan not only promotes these people's self-reliance in the camps and back in their own country, but it also plays an important role in preserving their cultural traditions.|
