Winter holidays are just around corner! Are you looking for unique and original gifts for your family and friends? Here is our suggestion.....
Our allied organizations sell their original goods to raise money for children in need.
For example, Ringono, a group of Japanese living in France and Japan, sells badges and postcards with drawings by children in Fukushima. Ringono offers radiation-free apples to the children, thanks to apple farmers in Aomori prefecture, the northern tip of Honshu Island. Aomori is the native region of the founders of Ringono. Their activities are inspired by the apple pectin cure, practiced since more than 20 years ago by Belrad Institut for children in the contaminated area in Belarus. With the cooperation of local schools and organizations in Fukushima, Ringono has provided families with a leaflet that contains practical recommendations about foodstuffs that are useful for fighting internal contamination. The information is mainly provided by Belrad Institut, Dr. Michel Fernex, and the French NPO Les Enfants de Tchérnobyl-Belarus. Through Ringono, more than 20000 children have received apples and the information leaflets. This year again, Christmas and New Year's apple-gifts are going to children, for their health and smile!
Ringono members visited Minamisoma and Fukushima-city in summer 2013 (Photos were provided by RIngono).
