Our prayers and heartfelt condolences are extended to family, friends and loved ones affected by the November 22, 2016 earthquake and tsunami.
To date, we are comforted to know there were no fatalities and few injuries. However, the psychological impact of reviving memories from five years ago are incalculable.
We are relieved to confirm the children residing at Fukushima Aiikuen and Aoba Gakuen children’s homes (orphanages), both which the JASSC has supported since 2011, are fine and safe.
Once again, events in Japan give us pause and time to reflect, and to be thankful for our blessings.
We extend our best wishes to you and your loved ones for a safe, healthy and memorable holiday season.
The Directors, Governors, Honorary Officers and Staff
