Our emergency assistance experiences in the Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar (2008), the Great East Japan Earthquake (2011), and the Typhoon Haiyan in Philippine (2013) taught us a lot. In 2014, Japan Heart launched the "International Emergency Relief Project", in the hope of making use of the insights and know-hows that we've learned. JH will dispatch medical assistance teams in respond to large-scale disasters in Japan, and other ASEAN countries, in order to support as many people as possible. We are also carrying out joint training with Indonesia and other ASEAN members, enhancing collaboration, and building a systematic networking with alliance organizations in order to provide effective and swift support in a time of disaster.

In the face of major disasters, Time is Gold.
We'll deliver medical support to the site in Japan/ASEAN countries On Time.
