8 Years On: Mutual Support among Foreigners at Crossroads

8 Years On: Mutual Support among Foreigners at Crossroads

   Sendai, Miyagi Pref., March 10 (Jiji Press)--Efforts among foreign residents in Japan to help one another after the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster are at a crossroads.
   In many cases, foreign residents who were affected by the 2011 disaster created groups to look after one another.
   Eight years after the disaster, however, some organizations are struggling to continue their activities. Experts are stressing the need to clarify the groups' purposes and build outside ties.
   In February, three Filipino women engaged in lively chatter during a show on a local radio station in Kesennuma, a Pacific coastal city in the northeastern prefecture of Miyagi, with one woman commenting that champorado, a Filipino chocolate rice pudding, seems especially tasty on rainy days.
   The 30-minute show, which airs once a month on Radio Kesennuma, is hosted by members of the Kabayan Kesennuma Filipino Community.
