 MOBIL SELECTS WORLD VISION FOR $100,000 AFRICA GRANT
 FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobil Corporation (NYSE: MOB)


announced that it has made a contribution of $100,000 to World Vision, Inc., an international humanitarian agency headquartered in Monrovia, Calif., to support the agency's relief efforts among the peoples of Ethiopia.
 Mobil has been doing business in Ethiopia for over 60 years through its affiliate Mobil Oil East Africa (MOEA), headquartered in Addis Ababa. MOEA markets automotive and aviation fuels and lubricants there. Virtually all its employees in the country, which has been devastated in recent times by bad weather, famine, and war, are drawn from the indigenous population.
 The World Vision organization conducts relief and development projects in 94 countries. The agency has a strong field staff working in several areas of the Horn of Africa region and can quickly see to the distribution of food and medical aid there.
 "Because Mobil Oil East Africa's employees are local residents, Mobil has taken a deep interest in efforts to relieve the effects of drought and war in Ethiopia," said Robert O. Swanson, executive vice president for Mobil's Marketing & Refining Division. "We've seen the great work World Vision has done all through this region, and we know they can put Mobil's contribution to good use quickly in aiding the people who live there."
 Mobil markets through 27 affiliate companies into virtually every country in Africa except 5 South African countries and Libya. In many African countries, Mobil is the market leader among the international oil companies.
