In Japan, it was very strong earthquake. I and my family are safe, because we live far-off place from focus of the earthquake. But some my friends live devastated area, an acquaintance of mine; she can’t contact her family still now. I would like to know you about be careful things of not devastated area people.

  1. We must not send groundless rumor. Sufferer, they have very strong fear, so nor sufferer, be careful not to send information frivolously. There are not only sure information, and not only information of goodwill. Do not disturb them! Be careful it!

  2. If you support sufferer, please use solid supporting organization. If you send relief to earthquake victims by personally, you will disturb there. So please use solid supporting organization. And when you would like to give blood to sufferer, please do planned behavior.

  3. Menstruation There are many women in devastated area, they hard to say “want sanitary napkin or tampon”. Please don’t lose of women! Please give them sanitary napkin or tampon.

  4. Please do long-term support. Retrieval, it need many times. Please do long-term support.

Thank you very much for many countries support my country, I am so glad at it. I hope my friends will be safe, and my acquaintance can contact her family. Sadly, there are many dead, I pray for the souls of the dead, and I hope the death toll will not increase from now.

Love Mayo
