The Australian and New Zealand Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ANZCCJ)
invites members and guests to the
Volunteer Weekend in Minamisanriku
24-25 May 2014
The Food, Agriculture and Hospitality Committee is organising the fourth volunteer trip to Minamisanriku to assist the local community in the recovery efforts.
The trip is being co-ordinated with OGA for Aid who have played a vital role in the recovery and rebuilding of the Tohoku region. On this trip, it is likely the group will participate in helping to plant 500,000 long onions (up from 200,000 planted last season). Also, as it will be scallop, oyster and hoya season, the group may also have the opportunity to assist the locals and learn about the local fishing industry and how it is being re-built after the disaster.
On the Saturday night, the group will have dinner with some community leaders at one of the local Izakaya restaurants and learn more about the difficulties the community still faces with the rebuilding efforts.
Don’t miss this undoubtedly valuable opportunity to help Minamisanriku rebuild and to enjoy the onsen, nature and local seafood Minamisanriku has to offer.
