On March 10th, The Ohana International School held a Fund Raising event to support the survivors of the Tohoku Earthquake. I donated a couple of Gift Vouchers for the charity auction as I was very much impressed with Ohana's continuous efforts to help the region get back in shape.
It has been 5 years since the devastating event and although they have not fully recovered from the aftermath, the Japanese media and the whole nation are beginning to forget about what has happened and memories of the terrifying tsunami on the television screen are starting to fade.
So when I heard that one of my students who is a PTA member has visited the Tohoku Region to help support the Tsunami victims, I was both impressed and a bit ashamed as a Japanese who is starting to lose interest in what is going on there. (And now everyone's eyes are on to Kumamoto)
So, it was my pleasure to participate in this event. And today, one of the winners of the auction came to take a Sushi Lesson with her friend. Thank you so much for coming and also for your support towards Japan!
