Year Six of Tsunami Volunteer Project in Japan

Ohio University students Ben Piper ’17 and Nick Farris ’19 participated in year six of the OHIO – Iwate Prefectural University Tsunami Volunteer Project in Japan on Sept. 24 and 25, 2016.

Both students were on OHIO’s Chubu University Japanese Language Study Abroad Program in the city of Kasugai (near Nagoya) in Aichi Prefecture (central Honshu). They were already in Japan, but their travel to Iwate Prefecture and ability to join “year six” was made possible by donations from the Ohio University Alumni Association’s Japan (Tokyo and Nagoya Chapters), which covered the students’ long-distance transportation to Iwate, food and lodging.
