Condolences

Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology Board of Trustees and Family express their deepest sympathy for the loss of Mrs. Sadako Ogata -former JICA President- may her soul rest in peace.

Ms. Sadako Ogata had major inputs to establish E-JUST and without her support, faith and belief this university would have never been possible to be in its place and development as seen today.
