2012 April Tohoku Trip

A veiw from a hotel window in Ofunato, Iwate. 

Temporary shopping site, convenient for consutruction workers and NGO/NPO staff/volunteers, inconvenient for the locals without cars.

Raising ground level to rebuild warehouses for the aquaculture industry. 

At the office of Habitat for Humanity Japan. 

The very first seaweed harvest since last March.

Fishermen heading out to the ocean for the first time in a year. 

Debris can be seen pilled up everywhere in Iwate and Miyagi, due to lack of municipal governments outside Tohoku agreeing to accept and dispose tsunami waste.

Second major gift from JAGB - June 5, 2012

We are pleased to report that the JDRFB received today a very generous donation of $77,219.14 from the Japanese Association of Greater Boston.  Mr. Hisao "Hank" Nakatsuko, President of the JAGB, delivered the donation to JDRFB co-founder Atsuko Fish on behalf of the Association's membership.  The JAGB has been a loyal supporter of the JDRFB and the recovery work in Tohoku since the fund began.  Last May, the JAGB made a contribution of $100,000 to the JDFRB.  Thus, today's gift brings total donations from the Association to $177,219.14 - an incredibly generous and much appreciated contribution to the JDRFB's relief and recovery efforts in Tohoku.
