Four Month Update

As of this week, Japan marked the fourth month since the Great East Earthquake occurred off the coast of the Tohoku region. Relief efforts continue. According to one pastor, his church's relief efforts have shifted to rebuilding. A need in neighborhoods is transportation for those who lost their vehicles to the tsunami. At both Koriyama and at Higashi Matsushima, we have been able to provide more than 300 bicycles using AGWM disaster relief funds.

Below are some photos of a distribution of bicycles on July 16 at Higashi Matsushima.

 The new bicycles were delivered and set up in the park where the church distributed them.
 The adult bicycles came in three colors: blue, red, and silver.
