CALL FOR SUPPORT : “IWATE Learning Hope Fund”for the financial aid of the March 11 Earthquake and Tsunami orphans
In Iwate Prefecture, one of the three prefectures devastated most by the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 11 March 2011, a lot of children lost their parents. In order to help raise and give a loving and stable home life to these children in their hometowns,the “Iwate Learning Hope Fund” has recently been established. We would like to support these children until the time they reach adulthood and become independent.
We are very grateful for voluntary donations that we have received so far from within the country as well as from abroad. While the international media attention gradually fades away, the road ahead to help these children rebuild their lives is very long. With the creation of the “Iwate Learning Hope Fund”, we hope to be able to call more widely for continued help from enterprises and individuals from around the world.
1 Recipients of the fund are children in Iwate Prefecture who have lost their parents in the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
2 The fund will provide those children with financial support for the essential “living” and “learning” until such time when they can support themselves.
