Helping those suffering from illnesses
Tenri Yorozu-sodansho Foundation
Tenri Yorozu-sodansho Foundation was established in 1935 in order to explore all possible means to relieve human suffering, while retaining the Tenrikyo teachings as the fundamental basis. It was mainly concerned with medical treatment, counseling, and addressing issues relating to social welfare. This foundation steadily grew larger and, in 1966, made a new start when it established Ikoi-no-Ie Hospital in the Home of the Parent. Comprising the Medical Treatment Department, the Religious Guidance Department, and the Service Department, the 900-bed hospital seeks to make a contribution to the realization of the Joyous Life through the close collaboration between medicine and religion.
