Canon Aids Rain-Disaster Relief Efforts in China

Heavy rains in China beginning in May have triggered massive flooding and landslides across the country, causing widespread destruction and loss of life. In addition, on August 8, a devastating landslide struck Zhouqu county in northwest Gansu province and rescue and relief efforts remain ongoing.

We at Canon extend our heartfelt condolences to all those affected by these disasters and our thoughts go out to the victims and their families. Although the road to recovery will be challenging and take time, we hope that the region will soon be able to begin the rebuilding and healing process.

The Canon Group is aiding in the relief efforts for victims with a donation of RMB 2 million (approximately 25.4 million yen) to the Japanese Red Cross Society and other humanitarian aid organizations.
