April 25 Reiyukai Calling to Action to Support Nepal – On April 25th, a powerful earthquake of 7.9 magnitude struck Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. Many buildings were destroyed, lives lost, victims injured, and a wide area of Nepal and the neighboring countries was devastated. Upon receiving this tragic news, Reiyukai Headquarters immediately decided to donate a total of ten million yen from the Arigato Kodama Fund to support the people of Nepal. On May 1st, Yoshio Kawai, Reiyukai’s Chief Exectutive Director, visited H.E. Madan Kumar Bhattarai, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Nepal in Japan, to donate five million yen to the Government of Nepal. He also visited the Japan Platform, an international emergency humanitarian aid organization which offers the most effective and prompt emergency aid in response to global emergencies, focusing on issues of refugees and natural disasters, to support the cause of disaster relief in Nepal.
