Message from Fukushima – 福島からのメッセージ

After the box arrived in Fukushima, I have asked my contact there, if she could use more warm knits. She has send me the following message. I hope my translation makes sense. If you have any woolly hat, scarf, gloves or a pair of socks you could spare, please send it over to me. I am packing another box this week.

After the nuclear accident in Fukushima, many towns with large number of people have been evacuated.  One of such place is Okuma-machi and the people now are in a temporary housing facility in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, where there is a lot of snow.  Form the items you have sent I have pass on to people from Okuma-machi, and  there are still people who would like some items it is really helpful to many people.
