Mittal steel adopts community of
London, Oct. 14
Pledging an immediate donation of one million dollars,
Mittal Steel USA, America's largest steelmaker and
a division of Mittal Steel Company owned by NRI steel
tycoon Lakshmi Mittal, is focusing its Katrina rebuilding
efforts on the beachfront town of Long Beach, Mississippi.
As part of its adoption, the company
will work with individuals, churches, communities,
local companies and organizations in partnership with
Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, and the Mayor
of Long Beach, Billy Skellie, to rebuild the community,
the company said in a release last night.
Mittal Steel USA has committed to an
ongoing contribution of materials, people and capital
for the long-term reconstruction project. "The
effects of Hurricane Katrina on the people of Lousiana,
Mississippi and Alabama are heartbreaking, and it
will take years to rebuild the affected communities,"
said Lakshmi Mittal, Chief Executive officer of Mittal
Steel Company, the world's largest steel maker.
"In the aftermath of this disaster,
these communities are left with challenges that require
innovative, long-term solutions and substantial commitments
of both time and resources. Few cities were more devastated
than Long Beach, and, to address its needs, we have
created a new model for corporate partnership.
"We encourage other American companies
to adopt Long Beach and other affected communities
along the Gulf Coast. Together with the people of
Long Beach, Governor Barbour and Mayor Skellie, we
will make a tangible, lasting difference in the community
and link its residents to the entire Mittal Steel
family for years to come," he said.
