Medical staff in Shizugawa area, the victims of the massive earthquake themselves, have been working tirelessly. Before they were utterly exhausted physically and mentally, a member of Japan Mountain Guides Association embarked on a project to have them relax in hot spring in Yamagata prefecture with cooperation of Nishikawa town, Shizu Hot Spring Association, Tsukiyama Asahi Guide Association. The town agreed to pay the cost of travel and accommodation and HuMA bears a portion of expenses for lodging.
This short vacation project will continue until the end of May. The participants were pleased and came back refreshed.
In April, total of 23 staff members and their family participated.
In May, 36 people enjoyed the short vacation. Thank you very much for your support!
