Ongoing support for Atami Landslide Community

In response to request of the local communiy, it was decided that we would be continuing to the Atami Recovery Community Support program for another year. We are pleased to present a report from our local staff member Yoshiki Nanjo, who has been involved in activities to create a safe place for children, and to support the elderly in, who can easily become isolated following a disaster.

 Yoshiki Reporting:

"The landslide took away the place where the children of the community used to play. Essentially the local community lost their places of recreation. Unlike adults, children are not easily able to verbalize their anxiety and confusion. At the Kids' Club, we started we noticed that children were at first doing a lot of running around the room frantically, trying to release their pent-up stress.

 My goal was to try and engage with the children, so they would be able to express their thoughts and feelings. As a engaging with them through a variety of playful activities, the children began to gradually open up about their confusion and struggles due to the changes in their living environment following the disaster, and we saw the children less agitated, and more peaceful. Adults in the community also visited the Kids Club, and some observed that 'It's nice to see children in such good spirits.' Now, more than a year after the disaster, we strongly feel that a new community is coming to life in the affected areas through our activities."

Thank you so much for your prayers and support that have made this all possible.
