In the wake of the 2011 Japan earthquake and tsunami, hundreds of children also lost their parents and families.
Aid For Japan was founded by Akemi Solloway to support the orphans of this tragedy. In the short-term, the charity lends help to these children by supporting them and their carers as they rebuild their lives.
Every year, Aid For Japan arranges for Christmas presents to be sent out to Japan for the orphans of the Tsunami. This tradition continues in 2020. These gifts would not be possible without the kind support of the people who donate to the charity.
An important part of Aid For Japan’s mission is to reach out to some of the orphans from the tragic events of 2011. 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.
Next summer, the charity would like to invite two of the orphans, Manami and Yuto to come to the UK. Earlier this month, Manami passed her entrance examination to go to university. Gradually, the orphans have been rebuilding their lives in the years since the tragedy. You can help with arranging the UK visit for these children by donating to Aid For Japan.
The 11th of March next year also marks the 10th anniversary of the Tsunami, which Aid For Japan will commemorate.
