JYJ’s Donation of 600 Million KRW to [Alleviate] Japan Earthquake Damage Becomes Shelter for the Victims
A Card Created by World Vision Japan as an Expression of Thanks to JYJ
A portion of the donation of 600 million KRW (approximately 600,000 USD) that JYJ (Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu) has made for the regions damaged by Japan’s earthquakes have been used to construct a shelter for the victims.
According to World Vision on the 12th, the shelter provided by JYJ was recently erected in a temporary residential development in Japan’s Iwate Hyun which was one of the damaged area from the large earthquakes. The rest of the donation was used to prepare the emergency relief materials and reconstruction at the beginning of the restoration stage for the earthquakes.
30% to 40% of the current residents of Iwate Hyun are the elderly of over 65 years old and so it urgently called for help. The residents of this place who must live in a temporary dwelling for two years that will take for the restoration to finish have come to enjoy rest of body and mind through the shelter that JYJ has gifted.
Mitsuko-san (63), who has received the benefit of this shelter, relayed through World Vision: “After the earthquakes, many of the neighbors were uneasy psychologically but now they have come to enjoy stability in a space that JYJ built. I thank them from the bottom of my heart.” Read More →
