War and the Power to Live Program supported by Red Cross 1
War and conflict troubles many people’s lives here today. For them, war is present and it takes their lives, their loved ones, their valuables, and changes their daily lives every day. Although we are in a different place or born in a different country, we still have the same purpose to live. Regardless of where we live, we gather around the table with our families and friends, and spend valuable time with our lovers.
Through this program we would like to introduce people with various backgrounds and share their lives and emotions to spread the importance of giving a hand to people around you, and realize how wonderful and grateful we are to live in peace. Let’s share the Japanese way of caring and making peace to support everyone's “Power to Live”.
