Japanese Ambassador visited JEN’s Field in Lebanon

20061214_lebanon_jambassador_voisit01_1 On December, 14, His Excellency Mr. Yoshihisa Kuroda, the Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador of the Embassy of Japan in Lebanon, visited JEN’s operational field in the southern part of the country.  The Ambassador was appointed in Lebanon only three weeks ago.  He arranged the visit upon his arrival in order to see emergency situations in the South.

JEN received the Ambassador at our field office in Marjayoun in the Southern-East Lebanon.  First, the staff briefed him about JEN’s operations in the village of Debbin.  In Debbin, JEN distributed sanitary goods and tools for construction in September and October.  In the meantime, JEN formed a tool management committee in the village so that local population could manage construction kits by themselves.  

Next, the ambassador visited Debbin to see around bomb-destroyed buildings and JEN’s activities to reconstruct livelihoods from debris.  He had a talk with local people and witnessed how people appreciated JEN’s contribution in the village.  The vice-president of the municipality expressed his gratitude to JEN’s operations.  In addition, members of the tool management committee said that the committee helped people collaborate tightly to reconstruct the village.20061214_lebanon_jambassador_voisit20

JEN would continue our projects of reconstruction in close cooperation with the Japanese Embassy.
