Saturday 25th June
This was our last goodbye to a place which had changed all of our lives. Some volunteers decided to extend their stay by a week or more, and to them as well as the long-term staff we bid sad farewells. As we were leaving, more volunteers were arriving, which gave us so much hope. However, it was of some concern that they were not as numerous as at the time of our arrival.
Peaceboat is now expanding to areas beyond Ishinomaki and urgently needs more people to come and volunteer their time and energy. If you can spare even just a couple of days, please consider the impact you can have on so many people’s lives and sign up with Peaceboat – follow the link to the Peaceboat page from this website.
