■A Warm Help from Zambia and Germany (2011/06/17)

Lots of assistance is arriving from all over the world for the survivors in the areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.  Please allow us to introduce the warm support activities of Zambia and Germany.

Message from a Supporter Living in Zambia

I was asked the other day by the teachers of Lusaka International Community School (LICS), where my daughters go, to tell their Grade 1 to 6 students about the damage the Japanese suffered in the earthquake.   I accepted the opportunity with other Japanese parents and friends and told stories using slides.

On the day of the event, children with little paper Japanese flags on their chests gathered at the school music room and looked seriously at the earthquake photos.  After the talk about the earthquake, we discussed Children’s Day in Japan, and enjoyed singing the song “Koinobori (Carp Banner)” and making origami helmets.   

During that event, the teachers offered a donation of 100 yen from each child.  We gladly accepted the offer and decided to send it to KnK. 
I hope the warm help of children in Zambia will be delivered to the children of Japan. 
We will continue to support KnK’s activities in some small way.

Activities in Germany

Japanese parents of children at Vorstadt Krokodile Kindergarten in Germany raised funds for the children in the Tohoku area. 

We received a report on the charity event held on May 7 along with the kindergarten flea market.  Among the members of the volunteer team was someone working as a designer, and a pretty poster was created for the event.

During the event, volunteers sold home-made Japanese food, such as sushi, curry and kara-age, and used children’s clothing and toys donated for the event.  They also held a calligraphy workshop.  At this event, KnK’s activities were also discussed.

 




With your assistance, KnK is implementing our activities for the earthquake survivors in the hope of a speedy recovery.
