Delivered Bathing Kits

Many of the earthquake survivors lost all their belongings, even though it is little things for example bathing goods. Hygiene-related support for them will become essential since the rainy season is approaching in Kumamoto where well-known for humid and hot weather is.

JEN delivered sixty sets of bathing kits consist of shampoo, soap and so on provided by ALBION Co. Ltd., who specialises cosmetics and skin care products, to a community center in the Nishi Ward of Kumamoto City.

As of May, about sixty people were living in the community center. Unlike young people who could move around by their own, elderly people had little opportunities of taking a bath since the earthquake due to the health problems. The kits were useful for them as a shower facility was set up in the community center at the end of the month. In the centre, one of staff who supports the survivors said delightfully “the bathing goods are very useful”.

JEN will continue supporting the survivors’ live safely and healthily.
