Our business is in the field of medicine, which we consider as philanthropic activities in nature. We also actively engage in various social action programs through our two affiliated philanthropic organizations, namely, a public foundation "Rentai Tohoku Seinan" and a non-profit organization "Sata Foundation".
RENTAI TOHOKU SEINAN
TKB established a public foundation, “RENTAI TOHOKU SEINAN”, to support relief activities in the Tohoku region gravely affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011.
At the time of its foundation, RENTAI TOHOKU SEINAN assisted with debris removal, helped the recovery of heavily damaged fisheries, farming and forestry industries as well as provided support to medical institutions in the disaster affected area.
At present, RENTAI TOHOKU SEINAN frequently hosts curry events at various temporary and public restoration houses and offer socializing opportunities for the residents, who tend to be isolated. At such events, the residents are encouraged to join volunteers preparing authentic curry. Also, the Foundation organises symposiums with a panel of experts from both Japan and overseas to help self-supporting efforts of disaster victims.

A non-profit organization “Sata Foundation” was established in 2001 with the purpose of promoting world peace and mutual understanding among different countries, nations and cultures. The Foundation also aims at increasing availability of better medical services and protecting human rights, especially saving children in war zones.
The Foundation’s ongoing projects include leading a campaign for the inscription to the UNESCO’s World Heritage List of "Madonna of Nagasaki" of the Urakami Cathedral in Nagasaki and providing assistance to Shechen Clinic, a free medical facility for impoverished people in Nepal.
