Camp cancelled for 2020 due to COVID-19

Our annual Kids Camp for Fukushima children has had to be cancelled this year, due to the coronavirus situation. Though the COVID-19 pandemic has subsided in Japan, and many people are returning to work, and children are back at school, camp facilities are opting to stay closed this summer season as a precaution.

Instead of the camp, this year we will be doing a special one-day outing for the children we serve in Fukushima, and will be planning for camps next year, when hopefully the situation will be well under control.

Thank you to all who gave to this project to help the children of Fukushima.

God bless you!

Deliveries already made to over 250 institutions

Our staff have been working hard, and already in the last few weeks since we launched this project, we have delivered 5,120 liters (1,280 gallons) of chlorine to 253 welfare institutions across Japan.

We are receiving emails and notes of thanks from the directors of these institutions, expressing how much they appreciated receiving the supply of chlorine, as their facility was running out of disinfectant.

Facilities we are supplying to are as far as Hokkaido in the north, and Kyushu in the south.

Here are some photos of our activity, and some shots of the chlorine being used to keep vulnerable clients in these institutions safe.

Children Move Into New Learning Space

The Learning Center for Hokkaido children, moved into newly rented log house.

Our original plan was to provide the learning center with a trailer house. However, the directors were able to find a place to rent, a nice and spacious log house, for which the local government is providing on-going rent support for two years. Instead of providing the trailer house, we instead provided the learning center with desks and chairs for the children.

Center directors are grateful for the support provided, and we wish to thank all those who gave to this project.

As there is a surplus of funds, we will be reallocating remaining funds for welfare projects in Hokkaido.
