Board of Directors (September 6, 2022)

Chairperson’s Message

Providing education on health and medical care to the mothers and children of Asia
I am honored to be appointed chairperson of People’s Hope Japan’s (PHJ’s) Board of Directors and am the fourth person to serve in this role.
In January, PHJ celebrated its 25th anniversary. Upholding the vision of health and hope for all, PHJ has implemented healthcare-related projects in Romania, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar as well as disaster relief projects in Japan. On behalf of PHJ, I wish to express to our donors and other supporters our sincere appreciation for all you have done over the past 25 years to support us in these endeavors. Without your support, PHJ could not have achieved so much.
PHJ shares with the world community a commitment to achieving the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the year 2030. PHJ will continue to actively engage in projects that are closely linked with the SDGs.
