Support for Northern Japan (Tohoku)

Following the Great East Japan Earthquake on 11th March 2011, JMG has supported people in Tohoku through sending a donation to Kunohe Village Office, Iwate, Japan, with which JMG has developed exchanges over the years. Kunohe Village Office, in turn, donated it to Noda and Fudai Village Offices along the Pacific Coast, both affected by the tsunami. We will continue to support Tohoku in this way.

JMG sent Kunohe Village Office £984.62 in 2011 and £943.53 in 2012. We are grateful to those who have made their generous contributions towards JMG’s donations.
