BHN commended by MIC, Japan

On May 25, the Ministry of Internal Affairs & Communications of Japan (MIC) publicly recognized the services rendered by BHN Association to launch, maintain and operate temporary disaster radio broadcasting stations in Tohoku area which was devastated by the gigantic Tsunami in March last year.  The Ministry says that these radio stations contributed the best among many services under their auspices to support the victims.   

BHN has so far assisted as many as 21 temporary disaster broadcasting stations and other radio program making NGOs in Tohoku area.   Many of the temporary disaster broadcasting stations are still in need of technical & financial supports.  As BHN received a new grant from GlobalGiving, we are now starting detailed discussions with the radio operators and local governments how to assist those stations.(June 1, 2012)
