Evacuees receive the bags from Yoshiteru HORIE (AAR JAPAN’s Secretary-General, at the center) at Sports Arena Soma, a sport facility currently used as an evacuation center.
“Wow, I’m delighted!”, says an evacuee when she saw the letter inside the tote bag.
For each tote bag, we put an AAR JAPAN’s mascot Sunny-chan’s key holder and also a letter from the person who donated the bag. People at the evacuation center happily took the bags they most liked and were saying “It’s really well made!” or “I’ll start using it right away!”, with satisfaction.
On May 26th, we delivered tote bags to the people living outside evacuation centers, in their own houses in Kamaishi City, Iwate Prefecture. Difficulties in receiving food and medical services still continues.
