Dr. Kikuchi: From this April, we work for children and their parents…
At first we worked for care of children’s minds.
We need help for all of children, for example physical body, care of body, care of mind or anything about children.
Children living in Fukushima, they couldn’t play outside, exposure of radiation.
They couldn’t run, they couldn’t jump… so I make a very wide indoor playground… about 100,000 people come in 3 months.
Naoko Endo: … All the people care about radiation all the time. They always worry about sand, especially outside. Because much radiation always leaking out.
Dr. Kikuchi: We need help from outside Japan because Japanese people don’t think the situation for children is getting worse and worse.
We are now in very bad condition. Especially for children.
So please give us help.
