たくさんあって全部には行けませんが、今週日曜日のBenefit Concert For The Victims Of The Earthquake And Tsunami In Japanには家族で行く予定。(うたこが静かに聞けるかどうかが問題ですが……)。そして5月の母の日のRebuild Japan Charity Eventは女性の会のメンバーとしてお手伝いもします。

知り合いのアメリカ人女性がボランティア団体と一緒に今、被災地に入っています。壊れた住宅等の撤去や、きれいにすれば使える住宅の清掃・消毒、道路のがれき除去などの作業をボランティアを組織して行うのだそうです。翻訳などで少々私もお手伝いしています。(All Hands Volunteersのウェブサイトはこちら→

また大きな余震があって被災地は本当に大変な状況のようです。今後も多くの物資、労働力、お金が必要になると思います。孫氏やジャッキー・チェン氏ほどのお金は出せませんが、できることをやっていきたいと思います。

---------------------------------------------------------------------

それからこちらは震災支援とは全く関係ないのですが、ついでにお願い。

フランス人大学院生(20代の女性)がボストンでの研修のため部屋を探しています。6月7日~7月6日のうち1~2週間でも構わないので受け入れていただけるお宅を探しています。日本が好きで日本語を勉強しているので、日本人家庭での滞在を希望しています。家賃は少しなら払ってもらえそうです。

我が家でぜひやりたいのですが、ゲスト用の部屋がなく、ずっとリビングで寝ていただくわけにもいかないのでこうして広く(読者数不明ですが~)呼びかけることにしました。

もしやっていただける方があれば、鍵コメでEメールアドレスをお知らせいただければ、詳細お知らせします。よろしくお願いします!
