Our program to supply disinfecting chlorine to welfare institutions and hospitals serving the vulnerable, since April 2020, continued through into this year. We served over a quarter million beneficiaries, in 27 prefectures of Japan. As critical supplies of disinfectant has stabilized in the market, we have decided to wind this program down, as our team shifts focus to other critical needs in Japan.
We want to thank each one who donated to this important project.
Our team continues to reach out to the vulnerable that have faced landslides and heavy rains in Japan this past summer, amidst the challenges that the ongoing COVID-19 crisis presents. More details can be found at the link below.
Our program to supply disinfectanting chlorine since April 2020, has been continuing. Though supplies of disinfectant has stabilized in the market, and innoculations are progressing, we are still receiving requests from welfare organizations such as homes for the elderly, children's care centers, who are needing the supplies to keep their facilities safe.
To date we have served 855 institutions in 27 prefectures helping over 264,000 individuals.
Certain parts of Japan have entered a 4th wave, and there is concern about the feasibilty of the Tokyo Olympics in July, which the government plans on keeping on track albeit without guests (only athletes) from overseas.
We continue to monitor the situation, and provide support where needed.
Thank you for your partnership in this important projejct in the ongoing battle against the virus.

A recent request came from Iheya Village on an island off the coast of the Okinawa mainland with a population of about 1200. A COVID-19 cluster had developed there, so our staff contacted the town office, and they gladly received the chlorine that we sent via truck and boat to the remote island as their supplies were dwindling.
Thank you for your support of this important projejct in the ongoing uphill battle against the virus.
Since our project started in mid-April, we have produced over 18,665 liters of chlorine that has benefited over 250,000 individuals in 878 welfare institutions across Japan.
Letters of thanks we have received include the following:
Family Support Facility
"We are disinfecting and ventilating the facility every day to prevent spread of the corona virus. We would like to thank you very much for the valuable chlorine that is hard to come by because of soaring prices."
Handicapped Children's Facility
"Thank you very much for giving us the chlorine, during this time when disinfectant solution was not available.Our facility mainly helps handicapped children attending special needs classes. We are grateful for the all the help and support."
Though disinfectant supplies are more readily available now, we are still providing our locally produced chlorine to those facilities that are still in need.
Our staff have been working hard, and already in the last few weeks since we launched this project, we have delivered 5,120 liters (1,280 gallons) of chlorine to 253 welfare institutions across Japan.
We are receiving emails and notes of thanks from the directors of these institutions, expressing how much they appreciated receiving the supply of chlorine, as their facility was running out of disinfectant.
Facilities we are supplying to are as far as Hokkaido in the north, and Kyushu in the south.
Here are some photos of our activity, and some shots of the chlorine being used to keep vulnerable clients in these institutions safe.
