At the end of last month, Sara Ai Coe contributed a guest article to this site introducing the TA Project. This is a group of young professionals in Osaka attempting to help the children of Fukushima by giving them a chance to play freely in a safe environment. Now they have started their own, very modest fundraising campaign. For a mere $1,500 they plan to invite children from Fukushima for a 4 day camp in Osaka from August 17th to 20th. Why is this important?
Children in Kori-machi Fukushima are only allowed to play outside for 1 hour because of the risk of radiation. And this is only one of the many side effects caused by the Nuclear Plant Melt Down in Fukushima. Well and truly the lives of people in Fukushima has been turned upside down. Not only have children lost their homes, family and friends. Everyday they have to stress about radiation levels in the food they eat, the water they drink and the environment they play in. No child should ever have to go through this!! Let’s do something for these kids!!
Here’s Sara and the boys to tell us more about it:
