“Bora Sapo” Grant Reaches 1 Billion Yen

The assistance grant Akaihane “The Disaster Relief Volunteer & NPO Support Fund (Bora Sapo),” organized by the Central Community Chest of Japan, exceeded a total of 1 billion yen on November 10, 2011. The fourth grant will assist 331 volunteer groups that have been involved in advancing the common good in communities that have been affected by the devastating 2011 earthquake.

The grant will further the programs in the relief effort by including counseling services for those who have been affected mentally and emotionally, securing transportation, childcare support and capacity training to increase job opportunities. The grant will also aid in the reconstruction of Japanese communities.
