September 2011 Donation for the children of Namiemachi
September 20th, I went to Nihonmatsu in Fukushima Prefecture, to meet Mr Baba, Mayor of Namiemachi,
Nihomatsu is the City where the temporary Town Hall of Namiemachi is located,
It was really a very sad day, it was raining so hard, and my heart was ful of sorrow.
The Members of The Tokyo Women’s Club were very generous, since April 2011,the Club collect 300,000 Yen
Mr Baba, was so moved by our donation and promised me to use it in the best way to help the most needed children. His task is huge, he said, because his office and the people had to move 3 times since march 11, to avoid the high level of the radioactivity. this situation was not only for Namiemachi , but others cities of the same region as well. The people suffer a lot, many questions are still without answers. For instance, when they will be able to return to their town, It will take years. For some of us, maybe never. But every day with renewed hope, we will never give up.
He thanks deeply the Tokyo Women’s club for his solidarity, All my people need it desperately, he says.
