This year’s fundraising campaign for refugees and children in need, in Japan and abroad, comes to an official close today. The donations received as of Friday totaled 3,507,604 yen. Money received after the end of this year’s campaign will be included in next year’s charity fund drive.

We are most grateful to our readers, who have responded generously to help refugees and children in need of humanitarian aid. We believe our readers’ kind support will give the needy people great encouragement and hope for a better tomorrow.
