Update on AMDA's International Scholarship Program

Dear Global Giving Donors,

Thank you so much for your hearty support to AMDA's activity for Tohoku.

AMDA has been supporting to the high school students living in Tohoku region, where the number of lives has been impacted by Japan Earthquake and Tsunami on 11 March 2011. AMDA International Scholarship Program has started in March 2011 and 274 students of 8 schools have received the scholarship in the past three years. Each student receives 15,000yen (about 147USD) per month until she/he graduates high school.

We are happy to announce that 45 students graduated from their high schools in March 2014 and go on to higher education to become a medical professional. Thanks to the warm support from our donors, we are able to decide to add more recipients for the year of 2014. We are in the process of choosing more scholarship recipients for this year.

The report in PDF file is attached in below.

Thank you so much again for your continued support.

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.
