FOR TOHOKU DISASTER AREA KIDS
Thanks to our many supporters and with the help of a great team of SWTJ members and young volunteer camp leader assistants, we were able to again organize a fun summer camp for Tohoku disaster area kids!
We contacted schools, community centers, and our branches in Tohoku to announce our second summer camp to the local population. Many kids who had participated in the camp last year were eager to join again! And many new kids overcame the fear to leave home for 3 days for the first time alone, and joined us for the great adventure!
The location was just perfect: Minami Koryu Center in Senmaya (Iwate Prefecture) is a spacious house with futon bedding, a big kitchen, and a great sports ground nearby!
All the meals were prepared together with the kids! Cooking together was an important part of the camp and enjoyed by all!
|Curry for tonight!|
At night, the SWTJ volunteer team would meet to prepare the following day...
