About World Network
World Network for Saving Children from Radiation is comprised of individuals who are carrying out grassroots activities in different parts of the world to support children exposed to radiation.It was founded in June 2012, when the members of Fukushima Network for Saving Children from Radiation faced the need to inform the situation of Fukushima to the rest of the world, particularly on the health of its children.
Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster on March 11th 2011, the Japanese mass media have made few attempts to reflect the reality of Fukushima. Fukushima disappeared in the international media coverage within several months of the disaster. By sharing the information from Fukushima, in English, we intend to fill this void. We cannot let Fukushima fade in the memory of the people of the world. If we do, it certainly means that we are going to repeat the tragedy that occurred to the children of Chernobyl 26 years ago, and is still unfolding.
Until the Fukushima nuclear disaster, few Japanese had the knowledge of the children of Chernobyl. If the world had paid more attention including the Japanese people, they may have been spared the tragic experience to some extent. We deeply regret that we left them alone. As one of our main activities, we have started to facilitate an exchange between the parents of Fukushima and the witnesses of the Chernobyl disaster on our site. The World Network team helps translate the questions raised by the parents of Fukushima and translate back the answers given by the experts who spent many years working in Chernobyl. We hope their advice will help the people of Fukushima face the overwhelming challenges.
Chernobyl, Fukushima and a number of other accidents involving nuclear power are enough for us; they compel us to promote a world free from nuclear power, so that there will not be any more victims. In order to fulfil this goal, we are open to work with any supporters from all over the world with the same conviction.

These are our three main principles;
1. Connect with world
We will do anything to protect children from radiation. In order to achieve our goal, we work with parents from all over the world, if they share this ambition. We highly encourage opinions and ideas for the sake of protecting the children. We will not take part in any activities that do not contribute to this cause or reverse it.
2. Respect Diversity
We help each other regardless of status, race, sex and language. We encourage the diversity of views and ways, while we do not accept discrimination or prejudice. We seek to choose the most rational ways to protect children, out of as many options as possible.
We do not accept any violence. We do not get involved in any violent events. Violence, as defined by us, includes not only physical but verbal forms of violence. We do not accept any violent or exclusive comments through e-mail or social network.
