Outline of Earthwalker’s Activities
The members of Earthwalkers are seekers of a progressive perspective of the world by studying processes in many countries. Their mission is to give support after emergencies and natural disasters. We are supporting the humanistic growth and development of Japanese youth and students.
At the moment, our focus lies particularly on supporting the Japanese prefectures of Miyagi and Fukushima, which have been hit by the Great Tohoku Earthquake on March 11, 2011.
The area around Fukushima has been facing serious problems after the nuclear disaster. Children can stay outside only limited amounts of time, and there are grave fears about radioactive pollution of agricultural products from Fukushima.
We are witnessing a widespread discrimination against people from Fukushima, including difficulties of finding a wedding partner, broken engagements, and refusal of hiring in the job market. Students from Fukushima suffer from depression, questioning their ability of finding a wedding partner or giving child birth.
To support the people of Fukushima, we launched a long term relief project titled “Vegetable Project”. To avoid radioactive substances entering the body, we provide nursery schools, kindergartens and young mothers of Fukushima with safe vegetables grown in 1070km away Miyazaki.
We would highly appreciate your help in supporting our efforts to provide safe food for Fukushima.
Further, we are organizing recreation camps for children from Fukushima, who only can play outside a very limited amount of time. Once a year, we call “Fukushima-Kids, Come To Miyazaki”, and supported by many volunteers we do numerous activities to release the stress of the children such as exploring nature and harvesting agricultural products.
For many of the kids, it has been a long time that they could touch fallen leaves without anxiety, and they put them in their bags to take them home for their friends as souvenirs.
“Because of the radiation, we cannot touch fallen leaves, flowers or beetles in Fukushima. That’s why we want to take these as presents”, they explained at the 2013 spring camp.
Apart from Miyazaki, we have also organized trips to Germany and Australia. To be able to continue organizing recreational camps, we need your support.
Reports about abnormalities of Fukushima children’s thyroids are worryingly increasing. To keep up our work for Fukushima, we need the personal support of everyone!
We depend on your support to keep up our activity.
