IN THE CAUSE OF LIFE
Human life ultimately ends with death.
Death has many causes, including illness, accidents, and even suicide.
We reinforce social safety nets and provide support to enrich irreplaceable human lives, so that people can live out their lives as they wish, while leaving a bright future for their families and loved ones.

What We Do
- In 2015 alone, 24,000 people in Japan took their own life. The Nippon Foundation is pursuing measures to provide comprehensive support to enable these people to live.
- The 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake caused major damage to a wide area of Kyushu. The Nippon Foundation is actively involved in supporting the recovery of areas damaged by the earthquakes.
- Launched in the aftermath of the March 11 disaster, this project raises funds and undertakes relief and recovery efforts in areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
- In cooperation with the Sasakawa Memorial Health Foundation, we support activities to expand palliative care at hospices to enable people to live their final days in comfort and with dignity.
