Our Club's Honorary Member and Paul Harris Fellow Yoshiko Stynes has just returned from Japan where she presented our club's donation of 200,000 yen to the Rotary Club of Namie, Fukushima. This donation was a result of a number of fundraising initiatives, including our Japanese Cultural Day, and ink artist Ms. Seifu Sandaiji who helped by donating money from the sale of her art work, to raise funds following the tsunami, earthquake and subsequent nuclear disaster near Fukushima in 2011. The donation was to support the R/C of Namie after the Earthquake, Tsunami & Nuclear disasters, and the donation would go to Namie Machi, the town which suffered the most. R/C of Glen Eira held a Japan Festival in Melbourne in November last year, & collected the donation from the event. As Yoshiko handed the donation, Dr. Shigetomi thanked & commented “Your kind thoughts are very much appreciated by us all. We will do our best to try to come back to our normal life & activities.“
