In the second of a two-part series highlighting ongoing efforts in Tohoku, Lifelines introduces two groups that are helping children in the areas affected by the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident. While some semblance of normalcy has returned to their lives, these youngest and most vulnerable of the victims of the triple disaster require ongoing support.

Save the Children is well known as an international nongovernmental organization that specializes in helping kids. Founded in the U.K. in 1919, the NGO has spread to encompass 30 independent national members, which have developed child-centered activities in around 120 different countries.
