About our efforts as from May 8th


In this week also, every member made an effort acting in their own field, racking their brains, and developing our activities. At the same time, I could feel that our activities were supported by many people. The forefront is not the only battle field. Our activity essentially needs depth. In Fukushima Prefecture, sufferers have to start the second evacuation from the radioactive problem. We appreciate your support and cooperation for both the devastated areas and our rescue operations.
