Asahi Newspaper

On the 8th of November, Asahi Newspaper's section "My View" (Watashi no shiten) told the story of Shoko So's aid activity.

In this section she commented " We have been receiving aids from companies such as SEIYU as well as donations from individuals but money alone does not lead to success in parenting aid projects. The most important part is the thoughtfulness towards pregnant women, mothers and babies coming from each individual in the community. Aid activity towards pregnant women and mothers leads to the recovery of society and a nurturing of the next generation also, hence it is one of the most important aspect that we all need to consider strongly" (Shoko So)
