Feb.18, 2018 The Paraguay Ambassador to Japan visited our monthly meeting.

 It was very cold in the morning but luckily it soon became sunny. There were many participants as usual:Sagami Women’s University group, Vietnamese group, Ethiopian group, Nepalese group, Tama Tecnical High School group, and other volunteer members.
 Today we had a special guest, the Paraguay Ambassador to Japan.
The ambassador talked to volunteers frankly and expressed his gratitude for our activity in his speech, adding that he would appeal to Paraguayans living in Japan for participation to our meeting.
 We refurbished 20 wheelchairs and have finished 80 in total for Paraguay today. Those wheelchairs are to be carried onto the container on 21st and the ship is to depart from the port of Tokyo on 27th this month. It will take about three months to get to Paraguay.

 We did refurbishing work for Ethiopia, too. We are planning to ship for Ethiopia and Indonesia in March.
