E-mail Print PDF
On March 16 and 17,Tzu Chi volunteers in Japan delivered hot meals to the survivors of the country's catastrophic earthquake and tsunami, feeding nearly 1,000 people per day in a town on the east coast of Japan. The town was devastated by the tsunami caused by the quake and many residents have been unable to return home.

Oarai is a town of 20,000 people in Ibaraki prefecture, 130 kilometers north of Tokyo, on the Pacific Ocean. It felt the full force of the tsunami, which flooded fields, houses, shops and factories and left the town covered in mud. The people in Oarai have no water or gas and are short of most goods. They cannot prepare hot meals for themselves.

On March 16, a team of 18 volunteersdrove from Tokyo to Oarai to serve curry rice. With the distribution set for 12.30 p.m., the residents began queuing up at 11.30 a.m at the town's community center; despite the cold weather, they were calm and orderly. Before the distribution, volunteer Chen Jinfa spoke on behalf of the foundation; he expressed the concern of Master Cheng Yen and the blessings of Tzu Chi volunteers around the world and then led everyone present in a song and a prayer. The song and prayer warmed the hearts of everyone on a cold day. Everyone present wasvery moved and some wept.
