We are a non-profit volunteer organization established by Oasis Chapel Rifu Christian Church in response to the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011.

Our Mission

Starting in Miyagi Prefecture and then out to the greater disaster area, our mission is to do volunteer work with a Christian spirit, bringing the message “You are not alone” to the hearts and lives of the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
