Yohei Sasakawa Blog ―Chairman of The Nippon Foundation―
|My Profile||Chairman of the Nippon Foundation
Yohei Sasakawa, born in Tokyo in 1939, has from an early age been deeply moved by the fact that our world is full of injustice and pain. He was originally awakened to this fact by an early experience that brought him directly into contact with the hardship faced by those affected by leprosy. It was this exposure that bolstered his conviction to devote his life to this cause and, in a broader sense, to social justice.
