Fukushima Kids summer report

As a result of the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, many children have been exposed to high doses of radiation and have been forced into stressful daily lives in which they are limited in terms of participation in outdoor activities. Against this background, Fukushima Kids completed its third summer of events, aiming to allow these children to experience a wide range of activities and enjoy their long break from school in a carefree manner.

A total of 496 children participated in our third summer of events which were held in Hokkaido, Abukuma, Nagano, Minamiaizu and Ehime.

On Friday September 27, 2013 the committee of Fukushima Kids convened in Tokyo in order to commence preparations for its winter events.

With the addition of Shizuoka to the third winter of events, the number of organizations and locations which are accepting children on behalf of Fukushima Kids is steadily increasing.

On Saturday October 5, Fukushima Kids Summer Activities Report Conference 2013 was held in Tokyo, aimed at various supporters and volunteers who have participated in our events. The conference confirmed the intention of Fukushima Kids to continue to harness the efforts of local citizens in order to protect children from the current situation in Fukushima and help those children develop into the young people who will be responsible for the future of Fukushima.

Two and a half years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake and many people tend to forget about the earthquake, the disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the people living in the disaster zone, unless they are specifically reported on. The number of organizations participating in support activities has also visibly decreased. Despite the disaster gradually fading in people’s minds, a large number of people continue to be involved in the events of Fukushima Kids, such as supporting individuals and organizations, and also volunteers and local residents of the areas in which our events are held. We kindly request your continued support as we continue our activities with the goals of giving children hope for the future and creating bonds between people, through providing support to the children of Fukushima.
