Vegetables to Fukushima 福島へ野菜を

leave a comment »

When I visited Fukushima I met many mothers who worry about the health of their children.  Mr. Sato, Govenor of Fukushima says that vegetables in Fukushima are safe to eat as it clears the standard of Japanese Government for containing cecium. But the standard is 10 times higher than that in USA  for example.  Mothers don’t believe that, but in the supermarket almost all the vegetables are produced in Fukushima.

Is it really safe fro children to eat them, I wonder.  I was lucky to get some information for free potatoes that can be sent to devastated areas including Fukushima.  I was also introduced to the farm in Ishikari that will kindly offer carrots and other vegetables to Fukushima in the end of October. Those actions will be a great help to worried mothers in Fukushima.

Mr. Sato's declaration of safety in every vegetables

I’d like to ask you to donate some money for carriage. Not much money is needed, but it will help mothers of Fukushima directly.  Please donate some into our bank account as written in volunteers & members.

福島のお母さんたちの直面する関心事は子どもの健康のことです。内部被ばくが一番怖いそうです。スーパーでは福島産の野菜がほとんどです。佐藤福島県知事は国の暫定基準以下なので安全だといっています。が、セシウムの基準では、米国の10倍です。これで安全だといえるのでしょうか。毎日食べ続けることになるのです。

そこで、北海道の野菜を送ろうと考えていたときに、幸運にも「こがねっと」さんを情報で知りました。小金湯でいもを収穫したものを被災地に提供したいというものです。また、石狩の石田ファームにも紹介いただき、10月末には人参などを提供いただくことになります。

少量であっても、おかあさんたちの気持ちが和らげるだろうと思います。送料にあたるカンパの依頼をさせていただいています。このウェブのvolunteer & menbersにある、ゆうちょ銀行に送料をカンパいただければ幸いです。よろしくお願いいたします。
