Donation for AMDA!!
============ We are students of Tokyo University of Foreign Language Studies (TUFS) who study about Africa, and run an organization called Femme Café. We are calling out to people on behalf of a Japanese NGO, AMDA (Association of Medical Doctors of Asia) in order to contribute to their relief activities in the disaster-struck Tohoku (North-east) region. Currently, the people in the disaster-struck areas are in acute shortage of doctors and medical supplies. Some people have lost their lives at the shelters due to lack of sufficient medical care. AMDA started operations in disaster areas on March 12, two days after the earthquake, and it has deployed 6 medical teams to Miyagi, Iwate Prefectures. They are now setting up a activity base in two communities (Kamaishi and Otsukicho) in Miyagi Prefecture. We are asking your cooperation with AMDA not only because they have 25 year-experiences around the world as a emergency relief NGO, but because the activities of the Japanese NGOs are not known abroad, compared to the ones of the International NGOs. Thus, it is always a challenge for them to gather enough fund for their activities. All kinds of activities are crucial, but since the impact of this complex disaster may last longer than we wish, we believe it important to support the efforts of the local NGOs. We are still in the phase of relief, thus, we made a contact with AMDA, and they welcomed our initiatives, and we are launching this message. Our organization, Femme Café, was established in 2010, in order to promote active contact and to create strong tie between the peoples of Africa and Japan through roasting and selling African women coffee. One of our missions is bringing people together. It is our great pleasure if we could promote communication between those who would like to participate in supporting the survivors of this disaster and who are on the ground. The following is the information about AMDA and how you could support. Thank you very much for reading this message. [about AMDA] It was founded in 1984 in Japan by medical doctors.
