Sony Group and its employees would like to express their deepest sympathy to all those who have suffered from the enormous damage caused by the major earthquake in the Chuetsu area of Niigata Prefecture.
We earnestly hope that the quake-devastated regions will recover as soon as possible.
In response to this disaster, Sony Group has decided to make an immediate contribution of approximately 20 million yen(*) to Niigata Office, Community Chest and The Japanese Red Cross Society. This contribution comes from the Group and our employees' individual donations. Additionally, we have provided 1,350 radio sets and 20 LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs to the quake-devastated areas.
