【Volunteer dispatch】 At a private house in Hamagurihama district

Period from 9/22/2011 to 9/29/2011
Cumulative participants 2919

On September 30, we engaged in removing sludge from a local private house in Hamagurihama district, which is a small village with less than twenty families. The house was hit not only by March 11 earthquake and tsunami but also a flash flood came down through the mountain stream behind it during the typhoon No.15 last month.



In this way, it was inflicted twice by deadly scourges. It all started by removing sludge with shovels. Some of the volunteers were so good at carpentry job that they nailed up boards that formed the foundations of its floors with a few carpenter tools on hand, using timbers prepared by its owner.
