Fukushima Aiikeun (FA) children’s home is a 120 year old orphanage located outside the evacuation zone of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, crippled by the March 11, 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. FA is home to 90 children, ages 2 to 18, all affected daily by the nuclear radiation crisis.

Thanks to a generous grant from the TOMODACHI–NAJAS Grassroots Exchange Program, the Japan America Society of Southern California is organizing a life-changing exchange trip for eight of FA’s older children.

Please join us for a Welcome Reception for the children. Afterward, enjoy a screening of the groundbreaking film documentary, SUGIHARA Conspiracy of Kindness. Sushi and other hors d'oeuvres will be served. For adult attendees, there will be a Premium Sake Tasting led by master sake sommelier, Yoshi Murakami.

To support future exchange programs bringing FA children to LA, we ask for a donation of $15 for each of the eight children, totaling $120 per person.

Special appreciation is extended to our hosts, Pepi Fine Jewelry and DOCClubLA.

Please reserve with donation by July 15.
