In order to bring an enduring support to the victims of the earthquake and the tsunami that ravaged the North-East region of Japan, the Association Solidarité Japon 34 holds a charity week from March 4 (Mon) to March 11th (Mon) in Montpellier (Espace Martin Luther King, 27 boulevard Louis Blanc). This initiative strives to:
- inform of the situation of the disaster victims and the ways to make it better;
- collect donations and support messages to help the rebuilding of the region and support children and orphans;
- … as well as presenting to the public the traditional Japanese culture through various events and workshops.
Until then, you can also support the victims of the Tohoku through the raffle held in the Jinja Manga, the manga café recently opened in Montpellier (10 rue du bras de fer): all the profits will be given to the Association Solidarité Japon 34. For a one-euro-ticket, you can win prizes offered by: Umiyaki (Japanese food), Solidarité Japon 34, Jinja Manga, Dreamland Shop and the AEUG.
The draw is set on March 10 (Sun), 5 PM.
