Part of Aid For Japan’s mission is to reach out to some of the orphans from the tragic events of 2011. While the charity aims to connect with these children through the annual summer residential courses, it’s also beneficial for the orphans to visit the UK when the charity can arrange it.
For children that have lost their parents, this is an important step that not only broadens their view of the world but also reminds them that the world remembers them.
This summer only one of the orphans, Maria, will come to England as the other children will be busy with extracurricular school activities. Maria will arrive on the 27th July (Friday) and leave on the 13th August (Monday).
Maria can be seen in the following Japanese news article (subtitled in English) when she visited England in 2012.
If you would like to donate to our charity, please visit our Donations page or this page: www.justgiving.com/AFJ-TsunamiOrphans/donate/. Your contributions will help us to invite more orphans to England next summer.
