PWA Supports Tohoku Senior Citizens

A celebration at the community center
A celebration at the community center

As winter approaches in Tohoku, PWA continues supporting the fishing community of Minamisanriku:
 its working families, those still displaced by the tsunami, and vulnerable citizens.  With these goals in mind we are partnering with a local NGO to provide staff and operating assistance for the Halley Valley Community Center.

The Halley Valley center provides critical support to the town of Minamisanriku:  a place for the community including senior citizens and handicapped, to engage in social programs, participate in crafts and training activities, and maintain vital community and social ties.  Through the support of PWA, the Community Center remains open and operational.   Minamisanriku and its fishing community continue to rebuild and revitalize after the disaster.  They greatly welcome this Community Center where the entire community can gather to discuss present and future plans over lunches and tea, cementing personal and social relationships and community ties.

In coming reports PWA will provide more details and photos of the Community Center, its staff, and the community members it serves.  We will also provide a year-end update on the successful fishing sheds program in Minamisanriku and hear from shed builders and recipients.

As always we are grateful to our donors and supporters.  Nearing five years after the disaster, the message to Tohoku citizens is clear:  We so admire your resilience -- You are not forgotten!
