A high school boy in Kumamoto has launched a one-person charity drive in Sendai, where he was born and experienced the March 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, to help quake survivors in his adoptive home.

Masaki Sugisawa, 16, a student at Kumamoto Marist Junior & Senior High School, moved to the city of Kumamoto when he entered the school two years ago. But after the major quake hit Kumamoto Prefecture last week and shut down the school, he returned to his family home in Sendai.
