Commitment of the MIC in Japan

They visit the temporary housing where about 200 evacuees from the nuclear accident zone live. The AsMIC are very active in the parish of Koriyama, and with the parish priest and other parishoners, they have helped the people living in that temporary housing project. Participating this initiative, Sister Sumitani feels this type of assistance is very important because it gives moral support to the people who cannot return home because of the high radiation level, even though thay have entered their 4th year since the disaster. It is necessary to maintain some link with those evacuees who feel abandonned by the government.
