Thank you for your continued support and donation to AMDA's activities focusing on recovery of Tohoku, Japan. We are very much grateful of your generous donation that arrives through Global Giving.

After more than 2 and half years since the destructive earthquake and tsunami that had hit Tohoku, Japan in March 2011, AMDA still seeks possible ways to help the disaster-affected communities. 

The summer of 2013, Japan was hit by a record-setting heat. Tohoku was no exception. Through the scorching summer heat, teenagers and university students contributed to the future of Tohoku.

Dear Global Giving Donors,

Thank you for your continued donation to AMDA's Project, Support High School Students in Tohoku. It has been almost two and half years since the Tohoku region was hit by the earthquake and tsunami, and each one of your continued generous donations have made their lives better ones.

As school year starts in April and finishes in March in Japan, the graduation takes place everywhere in March. In Tohoku, some of the high school students who actually helped the victims of the March 11th Disaster, graduated from their high schools.

AMDA continues to offer scholarship to high school students from the Tohoku region seeking their future career in medical field.

For more stories, please see the attached report. 

Thank you once again for your continued support.

<Kizuna Concert in Otsuchi 2013>

 On March 17th, 2013, “Kizuna Concert in Otsuchi 2013” was held in Shiroyama Gymnasium in Otsuchi, Iwate. This is the sequel to the concert held in Okayama and Hiroshima in March 2012. When the first concert was held last spring, Otsuchi High School brass band and Shujitsu High School brass band exchanged music sessions, and built new friendship. AMDA High School Club took part in organizing the concert in Okayama. The high school students had promised then that they will visit Otsuchi in the future. After a year-long planning, their dream came true.

For full story, please see the attached report. 

Thank you for your continued support to the next generation of Tohoku, Japan.

Dear Global Giving supporters,

Thank you for your continued support toward AMDA's activities. We appreciate your generosity.

In August 2012, two high school students from Okayama Koyo High School Interact Club members visited Otsuchi, Iwate Prefecture to volunteer, and to exchange ideas with AMDA Otsuchi High School Club members. This project made possible thanks to the generous support from Okayama Seinan Rotary Club.

The escorting teacher of Okayama Koyo High School to this project commented later, “Both students received a huge impact from the disaster area. What they saw, and what they heard must have left a profound impression on them. After the visit to Otsuchi, their attitude changed in a good way.”

For a full report, please see the attached report.

Thank you Global Giving donors for your continued support to the high school students in Tohoku, Japan.

In July 2012, students from Otsuchi, Iwate prefecture visited Okayama where AMDA Headquarter is located, to interact with students in Okayama. Through the same generation exchange program, our hope was it would bring the power of recovery for the affected students. For the students in Okayama where natural disasters are rare, it would give them an opportunity to realize the need of preparedness for the possible future disasters.

Students who participated during the 6-day program said they cried some, laughed a lot, enjoyed new friendship, and lots of email addresses were exchanged among themselves.
