Ever since the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, Foundation for Global Children has been sending daily necessities to the areas affected by the earthquake. Even now, we are continuing our support activities at the local communities. Currently, we are providing mental and emotional care for the students in the elementary and junior high schools in Minami Soma City.
Children from Fukushima Prefecture are invited to Ashibetsu City in Hokkaido Prefecture, the home for beautiful stars, to enjoy winter sports. Ashibetsu City and FGC worked together to plan and conduct the program. As of 2018, 475 children in total have participated in this program.
