We would like to express our appreciation to the Director, Yamakawa Takuya, to the Funnypro staff who made this film, and to Church World Service-Asia/Pacific for proposing its creation and subsidizing the necessary expenses to make it. Taking this opportunity, we would also like to thank everyone in Ishinomaki for accepting “outsiders” Peace Boat, and all the volunteers from all over Japan and the world for still participating in the field activities.
There still are many things to be done in Ishinomaki. We appreciate your continuing support in the future.TAGS: Church World Service Asia/Pacific • cleanup • Disaster Relief • Earthquake • festival • food provision • Funnypro • headquarters • international volunteers • Ishinomaki • Japan • Kanto-Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami • mud removal • Onagawa • peaceboat • Relief • Tsunami • Volunteer • volunteering • Volunteers
