Children prepared fireworks
JEN continues to support “SHIOKAZE KITCHEN”, run by Miyako Council of Social Welfare in Iwate prefecture.
One of seven children is now in the poor in Japan. The poverty rate of a single mother family is especially over 50%.
“SHIOKAZE KITCHEN” is now an capacious community place to prevent children from giving up their dream and also to prevent parent from holding their problems by themselves.
Every month, a single parent and the children, volunteering and staff from Miyako Council of Social Welfare get together, prepare meals, eat and enjoy the time together. Also, they sometimes listen to their problems.
This kitchen is monthly held in the community place, using a kitchen and a Japanese style room.
In August, we had an outdoor BBQ party as special event during summer holiday, as requested by children.
It was unfortunately heavy rainy day, however, everyone had great time all together with never ending laughter!.
