Project Report | Jul 31, 2017
To the supporters of our project in Kumamoto

On behalf of the local residents of Nishihara Village especially the local farmers, OISCA International wishes to extend our sincerest gratitude to the Global Giving Donors for your generous support to our project.

Since May to July, with your support and in collaboration with the local government and the volunteer group “Nishihara Village Hyaku Oendan”, we have mobilized a total number of 388 volunteers from the different parts of Japan. The volunteers have helped in the agricultural activities of the locals who are in need of support. Some volunteers did grass cutting in public areas of Nishihara Village.

 Months of May to July are busy months among the local farmers as they need to harvest and put inside the storage rooms the sweet potatoes. Others have to prepare their farms for the summer vegetables such as squash and okra.

 For several months of assisting the local farmers especially the elders, the impact of mobilizing volunteers is apparently effective in terms of the fast recovery of the earthquake victims.

 Sakata-san is one of the beneficiaries of the project. Her husband, who used to be in-charge in their farm got sick and has to go to the hospital often for fast recovery. Because of this, it is difficult for her to cover all the work and finish it within the set schedule. Her independent nature hindered her to seek help from us so her neighbors asked us to approach her and offer our help. She felt grateful to the volunteers who have worked steadily even under the scorching heat of the sun. At that time, the temperature ranges from 30-34 degree Celsius or 86-93.2-degree Fahrenheit.

Sakata-san and other residents of Nishihara Village are still in need of help. Other than continuous update of our website, we are also using our network so to encourage more volunteers.
