We would like to share our thoughts with you!
HuMA (Humanitarian Medical Assistance) is an NPO having main mission to protect human life and health through providing medical teams to support locally when there are severe disasters or life-threatening situations in Japan or overseas.
HuMA consists of doctors and nurses working in medical institutions across Japan. While the members face patients fighting with illness or injuries in their work places on a day to day basis, they endeavor to save many suffering people when there is emergency situation.
