About
〜TO INCREASE CHILDREN TO SURVIVE FOR 72 HOURS. 〜 After 311 disaster, we started volunteer activities and the parts of us are sufferer. Some of our family died by the disaster. Seven years passed. It is so hard but possible for people to rebuild houses and buildings. It is so hard but possible for people to reconstructing jobs. But it is impossible for people to regain the lives. There is no longer any possible way of facing our children’s smile. We don’t want anybody to be kept sad and heartbroken with losing the precious. It is also difficult for adult to judge and action with disaster. Children don’t learn with boring lessons. 【Co-sponsored organizations】 宮城復興支援センター The Recovery Assistance Center of MIYAGI http://www.ganbaro-miyagi.com/achievement/ Our organization was founded four days after the March 11th, 2011 Earthquake that devastated the Tohoku Region and have organized efforts in the Miyagi Prefecture, the Fukushima Prefecture and the Iwate Prefecture to assist with recovery efforts and to provide emotional/psychological support to the children who have been affected by the disaster. Many children were affected psychologically by the aftermath of the 2011 Disaster.
