The city of Minami-Souma, Fukushima Pref., suffered both from the gigantic Tsunami and entailed nuclear reactor accident.   Many citizens were forced to move out of their places and live in the temporal houses.  However, many of those temporal houses are located behind the mountains and have difficulty to obtain community related news and information from the FM radio station operated by the city.  

BHN has been assisting to improve such hearing difficulty of the radio broadcasting,however, this improvement work still encountered many technical difficulties,such as; limited radio wave band width, destroyed access road, remaining radioactive influences, etc.   BHN plans to complete the construction works by early September.

In July, thecity of Minami-Souma restarted its 1,000 years long history of Armored Cavalry Horse Race festival (suspended in 2011) to encourage people, including themselves, still in their difficult days for recovery.
