JOICFP at Tamahiyo Family Park
On October 23, 2011, JOICFP participated in Tamahiyo Family Park, an annual event held at Tokyo Big Sight and sponsored by Benesse Corporation. JOICFP set up an information booth at the venue, where many people showed their support by purchasing charity pinky rings. This was an excellent opportunity to promote the organization’s work, and JOICFP also presented a lecture on stage to introduce its projects in Tohoku and Zambia, supporting expectant mothers both locally and internationally.
About 17,000 people attended the event, and the hall was packed with parents pushing strollers and carrying babies. There were many activities for parents and children to enjoy together, including commemorative photos taken with the ever-popular mascots Tama (egg) and Hiyo (chick), baby crawling races, corporate booths introducing various goods and services, and a concert by singer/actress Hanako Oshima, who is a supporter of JOICFP’s work.
JOICFP would like to thank everyone who dropped by to show their support!
