|The message from Mr. Eric Ouannes, General Director of Médecins Sans Frontières Japan
Since 1971, MSF has been providing humanitarian and medical aid throughout the world. In recent years, there has been a remarkable increase in programs requiring long-term and large-scale intervention, such as treatment for HIV/AIDS and malnutrition. Only through securing stable contributions the continuation of these programs could be made possible. This year, MSF Japan launched “the MSF Corporate Supporter” program to ask for sustaining support from private corporations and organizations.
MSF-Japan has long appreciated Sigma Co., Ltd.’s deep understanding and support for our programs. We are extremely grateful for your commitment now to join the MSF Corporate Supporter program. I hope your support will help raise public awareness towards our efforts to help save lives. Thank you.
