Report on Activities to Support Medical Professionals
We extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus.
We are aware that everyone is adapting to the new normal through trial and error, even after the state of emergency has lifted.
We have been working to deliver masks and protective clothing to medical institutions to support medical professionals with the Johnny’s Smile Up! Project. After completing the delivery of medical supplies, excluding antibacterial masks, which were prepared to be used mainly in medical institutions, we would like to share the details.

We would like to share our gratitude for everyone who made efforts on all fronts, from the production and arrangement of the supplies to transportation from China and delivery to the medical institutions. Thanks to that warm support, we have been able to implement this support activity.
Because we had the opportunity to be in contact with medical professionals throughout this support activity, we understand some of the reasons why we can receive medical treatment with peace of mind under normal circumstances and, even under emergency circumstances such as this, a safe medical environment remains available to us. We learned that all this is possible because of the medical professionals who work closely with their patients. We also realized that this is true for all other professionals who are engaged in jobs that support our everyday lives during these times that require self-restraint. We have been able to continue living our daily lives even during the outbreak of the coronavirus because of those who have supported us with a strong sense of responsibility and we greatly appreciate those people.
Although this activity marks the end of the stage of us providing support through the delivery of medical supplies, we will continue thinking of ways to provide aid and to be of service while monitoring the situation.
Meanwhile, we will continue to offer our video streaming service through Johnny’s net Online, the proceeds of which will go towards the purchasing costs of the medical supplies that were delivered and the cost of future support activities. Streaming of Johnny’s World Happy LIVE with YOU is scheduled between June 16 and 21. We would be more than happy if you participated in our support activities while enjoying the videos.
We imagine that society will begin to rebound, accompanied by changes, and we sincerely hope that everyone can make the best of the new normal. To this end, we will continue collaborating on prevention to bring an end to the impact of the coronavirus. While taking on new challenges leveraging our experience through the recent activities, we will work hard in the entertainment business, which is our main business, and the Smile Up! Project.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in our support activities.
Your continued support is appreciated.
