How you can help
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.
