＊About influence on activity of new coronavirus epidemic
We will report the current status of the activities of the Tokyo Support Plan for Asia.
1) About the child support room in Machida city, Tokyo.
We are conducting activities to support children’s learning in Machida City, Tokyo, but since April we have stopped activities at the meeting place in the housing complex and switched to online support via LINE video call or Skype. If you would like to participate, please contact us.
2) About profitable business for fund generation
All the flea markets and events that we have participated in until now have been canceled until July, and it is no longer possible to sell goods centering on miscellaneous goods in Vietnam and Myanmar. Currently, we are switching to selling at Mercari, Yahoo Auction, Amazon Marketplace.
3) We continue to accept donations of ballpoint pens, used stamps, and ink cartridges. If you find anything that came out of your home during the GW, please donate them.
In addition, it is difficult to send ballpoint pens to the villages in Myanmar because it is difficult to secure transportation from Japan to the site.
4) About visiting the support area.
The planned visit to Myanmar in July and Vietnam in August my be canceled or postponed. Regarding the Vietnamese scholarship support program, scholarship will be provided by remittance to local children even if the visit is cancelled.
I will report above.
We will start the second campaign to share masks.Unfortunately none of the masks gathered at the first campaign.We would like to collect mask donations from everyone.
Half of the collected masks will be donated to users and staff of medical institutions, welfare facilities, and elderly facilities in Japan (planned to be in Musashino City, Tokyo). The other half will be donated to orphanages and monastery schools in Myanmar. We accept any mask such as fabric masks, handmade masks and paper masks.
The second campaign is until May 24th. We will report the number of masks gathered daily with photos as possible as we can.
If you would like to specify the destination of the donated mask for Japan or Myanmar, please write “For domestic” or “For Myanmar” on the envelope. Unless otherwise stated, we will donate to one of them.
We think it would be good if various groups carry out this type of campaign.
Thank you for sharing.
Due to the spread of coronavirus, events, and flea markets have been canceled. So we are strengthening the mail order. The link below is our Yahoo auction page. Please take a look. Delivery is only in Japan.
