Hirofumi Yokoi | Tokyo, Japan

At the site of an evacuation center in Tokyo, Filipino people attended memorial services and discos on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the tragic disaster which destroyed the north east (Tohoku) of Japan. More than 70 Filipino took a long, exhausting trip by bus from the disaster-hit Tohoku region and reunited their families and friends at a Catholic church, Tokyo, and shared their personal stories with one another in remembrance of the disaster.

The honorable Ambassador of the Philippines to Japan, Manuel Lopez, along with the officers at the embassy, also attended the ceremony to pray for the victims and their families of Japan earthquake and tsunami and danced with an encouraging song for them and the audience. Chris, a board member of Akira Foundation, and I was also invited to the event and met Cesar Santoyo, Executive Director of SEELS and Kathryn Doria Goto, Chairman of Hawak Kamay Fukushima, to share together some updates on the ongoing project of opening a first pre-school for children of Filipino migrants in Fukushima.
