Letters from Fukushima

375 kids joined Fukushima Kids summer camp in 2014.

All kids and their parents write letters to tell their feelings, thanks, and so on to join the programs.

I introduce 2 letters, one from a child, one from a mom.

After reading each letter, I understand the meaning and the importance of Fukushima Kids programs.

"Things I Think About"

 

I haven’t been able to eat vegetables and fruits from Fukushima anymore after the disaster because I’m afraid of radiation.

So I tell mom to buy foods from other prefectures.

I had a thyroid exam in March. I was the only one in my class to have an exam twice at a university hospital. I was so scared and sweated so much when I got a shot in my throat. I thought, “Why only me?” I wondered if it was because I went to get some water or because I was outside when the disaster happened. Now I don't play outside for a long time anymore. I want to play a lot.

Also, I appreciate that Fukushima Kids has been here for us. Thank you.

"To All Fukushima Kids staff members"

This is the third time we participated in your event.

To be honest, my son had told me ‘‘I don’t want to go alone far away from home every holiday. I am not going this summer,’’ before he visited Onuma. However, the moment he came home from Onuma, he said ‘‘I am going there again this summer!’’

He said he was so happy because university students, who were there as staff members, were really friendly to him, and that he promised them he will be with them again this summer.

I have seen a page on Fukushima Kids’ website where staff members are introduced, and I came to really appreciate that so many people help our children out. Thank you for everything that you do, and I am sorry that my son is a bit naughty. We look forward to joining your future events.
