Fukushima activity in March
It’s been 2 years since that disaster.
Feeding activity in March in Fukushima.
The town which was called "off-limits area" is now called "preparing for lifting the evacuation order area", or "limitations of residence area" or….it is really difficult to remember. The boundary is closed by barricades and check points.
I have been continuing the feeding activity as I must.
I always had anxiety about whether or not I can continue this in the future.
But each time, I got over it, trying not to think too much.
Still now, I feel fear, and tremble to think about the abandoned animals in places we can’t go.
At each point, I always feel this may be the last time, that I might not be able to come back.
I feel so helpless.
But still the cats are there.
I pray with other volunteers for their survival, and leave food in the field.
We set the 10 capture cages and tried to protect them as much as we can.
But we didn’t have enough time.
We captured only one raccoon dog.
Most of raccoon dogs I saw have terrible scabies.
The suffering must be terrible.
Why can’t humans be so gentle.
I couldn’t save any cats.
But, praying that they will have survived, I left the food, which is all from your support.
Thanks to volunteers who came with me without a moment of rest, distributing food 'till last grain.
There are still so many lives there.
There will be so many lives born.
I will never give up.
I will think and think and act.
Thank you for your support.
