July 3rd was the 1st anniversary of the landslide disaster in Atami, Japan where we have been continuing programs for children and the elderly community.
At a recent event, the gathered members made soap, as a means of therapy. Children have also been joining in with the elderly group, which is always a delight.
Another part of our program is to make regular visits to those living alone near the disaster site to check up on their welfare, and to offer encouragement. Our local program coordinator had this to report:
"The area is very hilly, but we went door-to-door in sweaty weather through lush, overgrown roads. One local that we visited was so delighted to see us, and said, 'I'm so glad you care!' "
We will be continuing our involvement with the local survivors and help them reconnect with their community.
