On behalf of Japan Society and Fukushima Kids, I would like to invite you to an evening with children who attended the Fukushima Kids Summer Camp, a grant recipient of Japan Society’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund. The event will take place on Friday, October 16 from 6:30-8 PM at Japan Society, 333 East 47th Street, New York, NY.

Fukushima Kids Summer Camp was started for children from Fukushima who were told not to play outside in the summer due to radiation concerns after the Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown. The camp eventually grew to include any child from Tohoku affected by the March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, and more than 4,600 children attended the camp since the first camp was organized in the summer of 2011.

Eight children from Fukushima will give speeches in English to express their gratitude for the support they received from donors overseas. They are excited to be in New York and have been working hard practicing their speeches for this special occasion. The speeches will be followed by a reception.

We hope you will be able to join us for a fun evening of food, drink and meeting the children and their family members.

Please RSVP to innovators@japansociety.org by October 13, 2015. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Fumiko Miyamoto at 212-715-1222, fmiyamoto@japansociety.org.
