Delivered Food in Ofunato and Kamaishi: No.2

Some members of 2HJ and I, 2HJ COO Masahiro Otake, went to Ofunato and Kamaishi in North Japan on July 30. 

Our goals:
1) Set up a large-size tent in Ofunato
2) Deliver food to our partner agencies in Ofunato and Kamaishi in the disaster area

Previously I reported about the tent setting. In this report, I would like to report about food deliveries in Ofunato and Kamaishi. 

In the same-day afternoon, we visited aid-agencies in Ofunato and Kamaishi to deliver food. 

We delivered grapefruits to this aid-agency in Kamaishi.

We distributed grapefruits in Ofunato and Kamaishi along with posters with autographs and warm message from Sachi Suzuki, a Japanese model. 

The lady in the picture had her house swept away by the tsunami. 

With a smile, she said, "We will rebuild since I survived!" She is engaged in aid operations to help other disaster victims. I thought there were a lot to learn from her attitude. 

Through Second Harvest Japan's work, I encounter many people and learn life lessons from their attitudes and values. 

They teach me how important to both us and them to be connected through our aid activities. 

It will be six months soon since the disaster but we really need to keep the momentum of our disaster relief. 

Thank you very much for your continuous support!
