What is going on in the world? ~ Children and Health ~

According to the information from UNICEF, there are great numbers of children over the world facing very severe difficulty now.

1.The world has 2.2 billion children and 1 billion children live in poverty. The number of children that die every year before reaching the age of five is 10.5 million. That is equivalent to the combined populations of children under age of five in France, Germany, Greece and Italy.¥¢¥¸¥¢ÉϺ¤­¡ÊÔ½¸¸å.jpg

2.The number of children under the age of five who suffer from severe malnutrition is 90 million. Underweight since birth, their bodies are weak and they get sick easily. They remain hungry all the time and half of these children live in South Asia.

3.In the 3rd world countries, the number of children that have never attended school a day in their lives is over 140 million. In South Asia, 1 in 4 children does not attend primary school.

4.1 in 5 children in the 3rd world countries has no safe drinking water. That is nearly 400 million children. In Africa, they drink either unsanitary water or must walk 15 minutes or more to a source of safe drinking water.¥¢¥¸¥¢¤ÎÉϺ¤­¢ÊÔ½¸¸å.jpg

5.A child born in Japan in 2004 has an average life span of 82 years. A child born in Zambia in 2004 has an average life span of 38 years. Even when children survive poverty, their adult life will not extend past the age of 38.

6.The percentage of people who never went to school as children and are still unable to read and write as adults in South Asia is: 30% of males; 55% of females. And in sub-Saharan Africa is: 32% of males; 48% of females. When they become adults without knowing the value of education, the same pattern repeats itself with their children.

I am hoping that I want to help these children and change the severe environment surrounding of children with many people. From the next year 2007, I will increase the number of children to give more aid and also as a company of H.E.C. Group, we would like to contribute to the world with our health care products, foods, and nursing products for healthy living of all human being. If someone has any ideas or advises, let's discuss together!

My First Blog

img1_001.jpgThis is my very first blog and I would like to introduce myself. My name is Takao Matsushita and a chairman of H.E.C. Group International.

Before I established H.E.C. Group International in 1979, besides the operation of a language school, I was also running a business for the training program for new employees, improvement of business skills and incubation of new business leaders. As I look back those days, I remember that I had a lot of difficult time with running companies and there were not much happy moments to overcome the hard time. However, I think these experiences become my foundation of today¡Çs H.E.C. Group International. The most important things to manage a company are to be aware of responsibility, to foresee the business trends and of course, to make fruitful results with these abilities. And I believe that it is essential for the company president to think 24hours how he or she runs it.

With the above back ground, I established a trading company- H.E.C. Group and I traveled around the world for business. However, one day I had a traffic accident and I have become paralyzed. At that time, I was shuttered to think how I run my company, how I support my family and my employees because I had no idea how. But with support from my family and many peoples, I have been through and managed to overcome this unfortunate situation.

I had never thought to be ¡Èparalyzed¡É before the accident and as it happened to me, it has completely changed my life. I now see things from a wheelchair and learn many things from it. I also can understand feelings with those people who have harder life than I do.

I wonder if you ever thought to encounter an unexpected disaster while you are spending your daily life. Even though the life has suddenly changed, it made me believe that it is important for a company president to think about the next generation and take time to make a successor. As I have experience of unfortunate change of life, I would like to share and help someone who has similar experience or suffered from difficulties of their life with my experience and advise in assisting for their better life.

img2_002.jpgNow I am taking a part in the aid to support those children in the 3rd world countries to enable them to go to school. I am hoping that we can help to give more children a chance to have an education at school. If you can help them with me, I would like to ask for your advice to make it possible. Finally, I would like to thank you very much for spending your time to read my blog and hope that you find my writing helpful and useful for you.¡¡¡¡Thank you again.¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡
