July 4,5: Urgent! Volunteers (+Japanese). Kanto Camp for Tohoku Disaster Kids!

Post by Andy OCJ »

This is an NGO group that does Kanto area camps for kids affected by the Tohoku earthquake.
I think they need foreign volunteers this weekend but also Japanese maybe. I am willing to go and help - anyone else?

I'm sure it will be fun, and you are helping them at the same time,
Expenses will be paid if you request.

Unfortunately I have too much work and need to do some work at the weekend, probably Saturday.
I can't attend for the whole weekend and that is a point which they insist on.

They have different roles for Japanese people and not sure what places are available.
Everyone needs to make their own reservation.
