Volunteer Work

To show our support following the Japan Floods, we carried out volunteer work with our Fordays members. We will continue our volunteer work with hopes for a prompt recovery.

Volunteer Work

The volunteers were primarily dispatched from Tokyo and stayed in Kure City the night before, being dispatched the next day from the "Kure Disaster Volunteer Center" to the Tenno district, where there were heavy damages due to the flood. The volunteers engaged in the removal of dirt and sand from attics and small alleyways where heavy machinery could not enter.
The volunteers worked under the scorching sun while being cautious of heat exhaustion.
