【VOICE】 Quest to Bring Smiles to the Faces of Children and Mothers

Barro Famari

I have always been proud to be able to take part in our ongoing support activities directed at African countries, and I am most pleased to have been able to start this new partnership with Daiichi Sankyo for supporting Tanzania.
This support project entails providing mobile healthcare field clinic services via specialized van. These services will be directed toward areas with limited access to healthcare, specifically isolated or impoverished areas with high rates of infant and maternal mortality. By helping make vaccinations and health examinations for infants and mothers a normal part of life, we hope to contribute to the accomplishment of the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations in 2015. I look forward to working together with Daiichi Sankyo on our quest to bring smiles to the faces of children and mothers.
