This summer, Aid For Japan will be bringing some of the orphans of the 2011 tsunami/earthquake to the UK.
As part of this plan, three young volunteers have flown out to Japan as part of a mission to help raise funds for the charity – and also raise awareness of its goals. David, Alex and Zak (who are all in their teens) will be tracking their progress on a special blog which will have regular updates on their travels.
For their first report, the boys encounter problems with mobile phones, familarise themselves with the trains and experience Japanese food.
Once their visit to Japan is complete, David, Alex and Zak will be returning to the UK on the same plane as the orphans.
Aid For Japan has made a point of organising UK visits for the orphans on a regular basis since 2011. 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.
