Project Title: Help orphans in Japan rebuild lives post-tsunami
Project ID: #7957-cb01
Date: December 27, 2011 07:45:41 PM EST
Receipt #: R495379-GC1356545-CBcb01
Our project will provide immediate and long-term support to orphanages in Tohoku and other areas that were affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. This support includes delivering basic necessities and services to help children regain a sense of stability in their lives. We’ll provide material support such as clothing, footwear, toys, books, school supplies, and bikes. For emotional support, this includes counseling and therapeutic activities (field trips,Yoga, camps,etc…)
[What is the issue, problem, or challenge?]
There are approximately 100,000 displaced children (according to Save the Children estimates) as a result of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that took place on March 11, 2011. Although there are relief organizations in the Tohoku region currently providing food, shelter and crisis counselling support, many orphans will need longer-term support to help restore their lives and renew their spirit. Many orphanages (in and around) northeastern Japan will now have new orphans under their care.
[How will this project solve this problem?]
Tohoku Kids’ Support Project will directly address two-tiers of support at those affected orphanages. By working closely with orphanage staff, local prefecture wards, and children’s homes associations, we will address the specific needs at each orphanage. Tier one support will replace those personal items that were lost in the disaster such as clothing, footwear, school supplies, books, toys, phones,bikes, etc. Tier two support will address child counselling needs and therapeutic activities.
