(October to February)
The Hospitality Guesthouse "A Dream A Day in Tokyo" is a nonprofit organization engaged in the creation of enduring memories of enjoyment for children with incurable illnesses and their families. Its activities center on making the dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses and their families come true by organizing and planning trips for them in Tokyo, handling arrangements at the locations to be visited, and providing volunteers to give medical care and sightseeing support. The MHI Group actively cooperates in this NPO's activities, and between October 2017 and February 2018 a total of 40 employees participated as volunteers assisting six families.
On February 23, MHI's employee volunteers received the "3rd Corporate Volunteer Award" from the Tokyo Voluntary Action Center (TVAC), a nonprofit organization under the aegis of the Tokyo Council of Social Welfare. The award was presented in recognition of the employees' contributions to nurturing a culture of volunteering in Tokyo.
Based on its CSR Action Guideline to "create a more harmonious society," the MHI Group will continue to support employees' participation in volunteer activities of various kinds, to give them valuable opportunities to be directly involved with society.
