Report and Relief Fund Appeal
★ Relief Supplies Sent to Iwate 27 September 2012
The Vedanta Society of Japan sent the items listed below to 'SAVE IWATE' as we did last time. SAVE IWATE currently distributes relief supplies preferentially to “those in greatest need” (the elderly and handicapped), on an individual basis who presumably account for at least 20% of those who have taken refuge in Morioka and vicinity.
The following items arrived on 27 and 28 September.
1. Grade 1 rice "Koshihikari" harvested in Niigata Prefecture in 2011:
300 kg (60 x 5 kg bags)
2. Scottie tissues: 500 boxes
3. Toilet paper: 540 rolls
Our Society will continue to support those in need by providing basic necessities as we can on a regular basis.
