Japan Alive received 100 muslin squares from London Mothers as part of the “Muslin Squares Project” . These squares are “to help young mothers and mothers-to-be in the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear affected areas in Japan. Muslin Squares are large cloths used to wipe babies’ mouths, for breastfeeding or as burp cloths.”
Many thanks to those in London who have supported this project, and the London Mothers group who are sending these squares to Japan and helping those in need!
We are currently distributing them in temporary housing in Shichigahama and will also hand them out at the Tanabata festival in Sendai tomorrow. We also hope to visit an orphanage further up north next week which is in great need! So stay tuned for more photos!
