The project that JISP has been implementing in Ohsato, Miyagi Prefecture, to provide support to the flood victims using a kitchen car, will be handed over to the Social Welfare Council of Ohsato from now on. Since this marks the end of a series of projects that JISP have implemented to support the people affected by the typhoon that hit Japan in 2019, we recently held a ceremony to mark the handover of the kitchen car.

JISP have worked to provide meticulous support especially to elderly victims, starting with provision of emergency relief supplies immediately after the typhoon, followed by the introduction of "Iki Iki 100 Years Excercises" to improve the health of elderly people, provision of tea salons in the affected areas, implementation of "Hello Garden Project (gardening project)", and through the kitchen car project to revitalise the affected communities. Over the past 3 yeras, we have been blessed with opportunities to work with many local people and stakeholders to implement a series of meaningful projects. We have also come to see and hear that these activities have become part of the daily lives of the survivors. 

The kitchen car has now become part of the community, and we are happy to know that the community is making a good use of it. With the support of the local management team, the community people themselves are coming up with creative ideas of events using the kitchen car, and implementing them! Once again, we really appreciated opportunities to spend great moments with the people of Ohsato through the kitchen car project, and hopefully, the kitchen car will continue to play a major role in energizing the community, and in  strengthening the connections within the community. 

In concluding this project which lasted for over three years, I would like to thank everyone who supported our activities by donating and taking interest in our activities!!
