You are definitely right, that this project is so supportive for the people who lost so much in the tsunami and earthquake. And it is a way to reach those of us across the world who love the Japanese people and culture, to remind us of those who are still in need. Because there are always new disasters in the news around the world, it can be so easy to put the 2011 Tohoku earthquake into the past. But the pain from that disaster is not in the past; it's in the present and future for so many people, still. Those of us in other parts of the world appreciate Voices From the Field as it brings back to our conciousness again the very real struggles of the Tohku victims.
