Thursday, June 2, 2011 donated to help orphans in Japan rebuild lives post-tsunami (via @GlobalGiving) contributed a donation to Global Giving to help orphans in Japan in the memory of Libby Smith, a longtime member of the photo imaging industry and companion of Don Franz, the well known international publisher and industry commentator.

Our project will provide immediate and long-term support to orphanages in Tohoku and other areas that were affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami. This support includes delivering basic necessities and services to help children regain a sense of stability in their lives. We'll provide material support such as clothing, footwear, toys, books, school supplies, and bikes. For emotional support, this includes counseling and therapeutic activities (field trips,Yoga, camps,etc...)

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

There are approximately 100,000 displaced children (according to Save the Children estimates) as a result of the devastating earthquake and tsunami that took place on March 11, 2011. Although there are relief organizations in the Tohoku region currently providing food, shelter and crisis counselling support, many orphans will need longer-term support to help restore their lives and renew their spirit. Many orphanages (in and around) northeastern Japan will now have new orphans under their care.

How will this project solve this problem?

Tohoku Kids' Support Project will directly address two-tiers of support at those affected orphanages. By working closely with orphanage staff, local prefecture wards, and children's homes associations, we will address the specific needs at each orphanage. Tier one support will replace those personal items that were lost in the disaster such as clothing, footwear, school supplies, books, toys, phones,bikes, etc. Tier two support will address child counselling needs and therapeutic activities.

Potential Long Term Impact

With many orphanages taking in newly displaced children, it will be incredibly important to create peaceful, stable and caring environments for all of these children. The road towards renewal and stability for these kids will be an arduous one. By restoring children's personal items, they will begin to feel some sense of normalcy. By offering access to counselling, they can begin the process of grieving. By providing therapeutic activities and field trips, they can start to feel like kids again.
Project Message

Having worked with many orphanages, I know how important it is for these kids to feel normal. They need stability in their lives and dreams to look forward to--this project will strive to meet both.
