Funds for New Charities

The Club's Connections group has donated ¥6.4 million to six charities as part of its annual support of local causes.

Four of the organizations are first-time recipients of Club donations and include Kanita Women’s Village, Japan's only long-term residential shelter for women, and Nanbyo Children Support Network, which organizes counseling and activities for children with intractable diseases and disabilities and their families.

The Multicultural Center Tokyo, an educational support organization for immigrant children, has received funds for a second year.

In an issue of INTOUCH earlier this year, foreign students explained how the nonprofit is helping them overcome cultural, language and educational hurdles.

Connections' fundraising efforts and philanthropic initiatives, including annual charity drives for Tokyo's Sanyukai homeless shelter and the Salvation Army, stretch back decades.
