Container line Ocean Network Express (ONE) shipped container of educational materials for South African school children free of charge.

The educational materials were shipped free for Together with Africa and Asia Association (TAAA) and comprised donated English books, math sets and soccer balls.

The materials were shipped in a 20-foot container on 25 April from Yokohama to Durban in South Africa onboard the vessel Allegoria.

“It is hoped that the arrival of these educational materials will drive engagement with the children and further support their studies. ONE will continue to engage in social contribution activities, utilizing its global network to support worthy causes,” ONE said.
