Sunday’s Yomiuri carried an inside-page report saying that “Helping Hands For Tohoku,” a volunteer group that was established one month after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake by family members of U.S. service members who belonged to Yokosuka Naval Base, is still conducting activities to provide support for the victims of the disaster that occurred ten years ago. The paper wrote that some members of the group continue to visit local communities in Tohoku and deepen exchanges there even after returning to the U.S., saying that the group received letters and emails from people in the disaster-hit areas expressing appreciation.
