Rendering Flood Relief in Central Japan
By Tokyo News Group (Originally in Japanese)
Towards the end of August, Golden Year 5 (2008), record torrential rainfall caused severe flooding in the Tokai region in central Japan, destroying many homes, farmland and roads. Such heavy flooding over such a vast area was rare and was obviously directly related to the drastic climate changes caused by global warming. Fellow initiates from the Tokyo Center immediately went to the affected areas to render relief. They distributed food, towels and other daily necessities to the flood victims, together with the Alternative Living and SOS Climate Change flyers.
There were many lonely old folks living in Tokai who did not know how to cope with such a severe flood. When the relief team visited them, they were tidying up their homes, so they helped them move the heavy objects and listened to them pour out their grief. The people were very happy to receive Master’s book The Dogs in My Life and other informative materials.
Fellow initiates hope that everything will soon be restored and the victims will be able to resume a normal life.
