In April 2013 Lush Japan invited 142 children from charity Fukushima Network to Protect Children from Radiation (FNPCR) for two days of exciting nature workshops.
In celebration of Earth Day Tokyo 2013, the event provided children affected by the 2011 nuclear disaster a safe place to play and learn about the environment. Many of the children come from areas where contamination limits outdoor play opportunities.
Founded in 2011 after the tsunami and earthquake, FNPCR is a group of mothers and fathers who were on the ground straight after the disaster advising families on how to evacuate safely. They continue to work in Fukushima assessing and tracking radiation soil damage caused by the meltdown, and present their findings at community conferences.
FNPCR is an independent charity that has received financial support from the Lush FunD.
The Lush FunD provides grants for fun and recreational activities for children living in challenging environments. To discover the full list of organisations we're supporting, click here.
