About HuMA

HuMA: NPO Humanitarian Medical Assistance

Humanitarian Medical Assistance(HuMA) was founded in June 2002 as a not for profit organization in Japan. Our mission is the humanitarian medical relief assistance for victims of disasters worldwide.
Today we live in a world of constant warfare of all sorts and face natural disasters of incredible scale. When such disasters occur, not all medical professionals are equipped with necessary knowledge about disaster relief to cope with the situation. Also, medical professionals cannot operate proper medical activities on their own. A well-trained coordinator must be able to identify the needs, recognize the danger, secure proper working base, and negotiate deals to prepare necessary items. Without a prompt action and proper management, we may lose lives that could have been saved.
The majority of our members have working experience in the field of disaster relief around the world through institutions both national (Japan Medical Team for Disaster Relief) and international. Here we have decided to establish a non-governmental organization HuMA, with the intention of carrying out our mission unfettered by national laws and to improve the level of knowledge and encourage personnel training on the subject of disaster relief.
