We are sad to report that one of Aid For Japan’s trustees, Paul Algar, has passed away after a long illness.
Paul was a tireless supporter of the charity and had regularly offered his services at many of Aid For Japan’s fundraising events. For those that attended these events, Paul was a gracious and welcoming presence who would often be seen manning the entry desk or merchandise tables.
Paul was also a regular attendee at Bunkasai Club, Aid For Japan’s weekly English/Japanese Social Club.
He also assisted charity founder Akemi Solloway Tanaka in her many tasks and responsibilities. Paul’s kindness and willingness to help was always appreciated and his loyalty to Akemi and to Aid For Japan was a vital part of the charity’s strength.
We all appreciate Paul’s warm and kind help to the orphans and the loss of his presence at Aid For Japan will be keenly felt by all.
