KUMAMOTO UPDATE: Very happy that we have received $10,000 from Global Giving's Kumamoto Fund towards our $75,000 goal to fix damage to children's homes and provide psychological counselling for earthquake-affected children.. These funds are coming from GlobalGiving's Kumamoto Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, which is supported by more than 1,800 individual donors in 33 countries.

Kumamoto Children Homes.
We contacted with 2 homes below today, had a short conversation with each home.
As of today, material donations from individual-level would be nearly helpless considering the traffic conditions and contents of demands although situations are changing day by day. But I believe we can at least be prepared for the "time" when we can start helping them by fundraising.
(1) Jiai-en Kodomo Home 慈愛園子供ホーム
70 kids + 30 staff
http://www17.plala.or.jp/jiai_kids/
Spoke with Mr.Ogata-encho & Ms. Okada (clerk)
- Lifeline: has recovered since 4.17
- Everyone is all right, but hasn't slept well. Many children need mental care.
- The facility's Hall has a tilt due to the earthquake
- Needs: foods, Disposable diaper, tissue papers, canned foods, etc.
- They started receiving Onigiri regularly from the government. Received 100 kgs of rice, sanitary materials from Boy Scouts , cup-ramen x 300 from graduated children in Okinawa.
(2) Hiroyasu Aijien 広安愛児園
50 kids + 35 staff + 500 evacuee (this home; Mashiki-machi 益城町 is the worstly damaged in Kumamoto-city)

Spoke with Mr. Matsuoka
- Everyone is all right, but hasn't slept well. Many children need mental care.
- SDF's support of (foods, goods) is provided, but paper dishes, cups, etc. are really needed.
- Needs; Disposable diaper, tissue papers, canned foods, sanitary goods, paper dish, plastic cups
- Because 500 general citizen are evacuated as well, donations that can be shared with everyone would be appreciated at the moment.
* Sagawa Express accept delivery for Kumamoto-city but it does not guarantee the date of arrival. Yamato doesn't accept the delivery for Kumamoto, Japan Post service does only small parcels. (as of 4/18) http://ow.ly/4mQR1M
