Thank you for your support for the Ukraine Relief Fund.

Since April 2022, Kashiwa Cross-cultural Center has been fundraising to support Ukrainians evacuated to Kashiwa, while sharing information with Kashiwa City. The city has received 5 evacuees from 3 households as of November. Your donations are used to help pay for their medical expenses, daily necessities, and Japanese language learning materials. The donation box has been set up at the office counter. (8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. except Sundays and national holidays)
You can find information about Kashiwa’s reception of Ukrainian evacuees on the Kashiwa City website.

Humanitarian Crisis Relief for Ukraine

Thanks to your warm support, we were able to send 177,000 yen (as of 3/31) to the Japanese Red Cross Society. Hereafter, together with the City of Kashiwa, we will support Ukrainians who have taken refuge in Kashiwa. We will continue to have a donation box at the KCC office and would appreciate your support.

We are also looking for volunteers to help Ukrainians. If you are interested in helping us with interpretation, translation, daily life assistance, or hosting a homestay, please register on our website.
