How you can help

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North - Mary Ver­non mary. ver­non@ townsville­bul­letin. com. au

OVER the 20 years of Townsville’s sis­ter city re­la­tion­ship with Iwaki in Ja­pan, many of us have forged re­la­tion­ships with peo­ple in that city. Sadly, Iwaki has suf­fered se­ri­ous dev­as­ta­tion, par­tic­u­larly in the seafront ar­eas. Part of the city is within a 30km ra­dius of the col­laps­ing nu­clear power sta­tion. There is no power, no wa­ter and very lit­tle food. If you’d like to help, authorities are ask­ing that you don’t send items as they can’t get them through. But you can do­nate money via this web­site: www. city. iwaki. fukushima. jp/ fukushi/ sonota/ 010310. html. Any ques­tions, con­tact our sis­ter city co-or­di­na­tor Su­san Roberts on 4721 4903.
