History

In 1938, Medical doctors and students, nurses and other health personnel formed a medical team and crossed the sea to serve Chinese people. In those days, many Chinese became refugees because of the invasion of Japanese army. A Japanese Pastor called for help out the plight of Chinese people. This medical service is the root of the JOCS today.
After the war, Christian health personnel of all over Japan including the members of the medical team above founded “The Japan Christian Medical Association (JCMA)” and started medical voluntary services.

After this announcement, requests for training assistances and dispatch of health personnel inundated from the overseas. JOCS was founded to response to these requests in 1960.


JOCS was established to acknowledge the war, the mistake that Japan did to Asian people, and to express the wish for future reconciliation and peace.
