Updates on Support high school students in Tohoku

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

AMDA has been supporting high school students in Tohoku Region of Japan that had received a massive destruction from the earthquake and tsunami of March 11th, 2011. We would like to thank all the donors and supporters from around the world who have shown their compassion and given support by sending donation through GlobalGiving.

Charity Concerts

In the past, AMDA have organized Kizuna Concerts connecting Otsuchi High School Brass Band in Iwate Prefecture, with Shujitsu High School in Okayama Prefecture (home to AMDA).

Recently, we have received a letter that was composed by Otsuchi High School Brass Band members, and would like to share their heartfelt appreciation with our donors. (please see the attached PDF file to read the letter.)

International Scholarship Program

Thanks to the warm support from our donors, we are able to continue to support high school students in Tohoku Region. In Japanese fiscal year 2014, 28 students of 4 high schools are receiving a scholarship through AMDA International Scholarship Program.

Students aim to be a medical professional such as a doctor, a nurse, or a physical therapist in the future. Each student receives 15,000yen (about 126 USD) per month until she/he graduates high school.

Support Tohoku through Music

Dear Global Giving Donors.

Thank you for your continued support for Tohoku, Japan. We really appreciate your generosity.

Three years have passed since the calamity had hit Tohoku on March 11th, 2011. From Day 2 of the disaster, AMDA has been supporting the people in Tohoku during the emergency relief and rehabilitation phases. As an NGO specializing in medical care sector, we have conducted mobile clinic, accupuncture therapies, and mental care program for children.

Aside from the medical care, AMDA has been holding “Kizuna Concert”, a same-generation exchange program through music. Just recently, we held the third Kizuna Concert in Okayama, Japan, where AMDA Headquarters is located.

Update on AMDA's International Scholarship Program

Dear Global Giving Donors,

First of all, I would like to wish you a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year! 

I would also like to thank you for your continued support on AMDA's project in Tohoku, Japan. Your support has made many young people go forward despite the hardship, and we are very grateful for you.

One student who is receiving our scholarship noted that the tsunami has taken away their father and grandparents almost three years ago. She and her siblings rely on their relatives to live. Through her past experience in taking care of the sick grandfather, she has set her goal in becoming a care worker, despite the financial difficulties she is currently facing.

For more stories from the scholarship recepient students, please see the attached report.

We thank you for your continued support.
