Funds still needed

The 6.8M earthquake in Hokkaido last September severely damaged the town of Hobetsu's only Learning Center for children. Damage was beyond repair and so the building was demolished by the government last November.

Though our original plan was to provide a Trailer House for the Learning Center that caters to 47 children in the town, due to inadequate funding, we will be using the funds received to help the school continue their operations in a temporary rented facility.

It is important that the children can continue extracurricular learning in this small town.

Thank you again for your support of this project.

Camp site decided for 2019 Camp

The Operation Blessing Japan team is developing plans for this year's camp. We have decided to use the same camp facilities as we did last year and are working out details of the programs which will include outdoor activities in forested play areas and on beaches of Miyagi Prefecture, indoor craft activities, games, campfire sing-a-long, and much more.

Children in Fukushima still live under the shadow of the nuclear power plant disaster. Every child has to undergo regular scans and thyroid checks, to monitor any adverse effects from the nuclear radiation. Though levels have decreased since the disaster 8 years ago, levels are still higher than normal, and there are still areas off limits due to the dangerous radiation level.

If you would like to view a video of our work in Fukushima, which includes the children's camps, please go to the link below. Thank you for your ongoing support of our projects in Fukushima.

Funds still needed

The 6.8M earthquake in Hokkaido last September severely damaged the town of Hobetsu's only Learning Center for children. Damage was beyond repair and so the building was demolished by the government last November.

Our plan was to provide a Trailer House for the Learning Center that caters to 47 children in the town. However, due to inadequate funding, we have not been able to set up the Learning Center for the children in a trailer house yet. In the meantime, the children are meeting in a temporary rented facility that is really inadequate for their needs.

As soon as our budget is reached, we will start work on bringing this project to completion.

Thank you for your interest and support for this project.
