Pakistani Curry Party (15th October, 2011, at the temporary house in Saito, Otomo-cho, Rikuzentakata-city)

Reported by Ryu and Tahel, Staff of Rentai Tohoku
We held a Pakistani Curry Party at the temporary house in Saito, Otomo-cho Rikuzentakata on the 2nd October (Sun).

 

○Temporary house in Saito, Otomo-cho, Rikuzentakata-city, Iwate
As almost the entire Rikuzentakata-city was destroyed by tsunami, most temporary houses were built on elevated lands and are extremely inconvenient for residents to go out. At the request from Social Welfare Council of Rikuzentakata-city, we held a curry party to encourage communication among the residents.
42 families (140 people) are currently living in this temporary house. Most of them are farmers or fishermen.

 

○Preparing curry
As requested by Mr. Kanazawa, chairman of the community council, we had residents provide all the ingredients except meat.
The preparation started with peeling/chopping various vegetables. It was a great fun to work together. Everyone laughed and cried chopping 100 or more onions.

What on earth is Pakistani curry like? People started getting excited.

Ladies finished chopping a massive amount of vegetables and took a break watching the pot from the window.

As a rich aroma of spices wafted out, the star of the temporary house showed up to investigate what was going on.

○After-meal relaxation
After the meal, Tahel made Pakistani spiced tea for those who helped clearing up.
We sat around the table in the meeting room and talked about the current situation of life and future plans.

At the end of the party, we were happy to receive thanks from the residents. We shook hands and promised to meet again.
Rentai Tohoku will always stand by the tsunami/earthquake victims and provide what we can to bring cheer to them and help them move forward.

Announcement of a Seminar on Self-supporting Reconstruction: "Toward the Light"

Rentai Tohoku is pleased to announce that it will hold a panel discussion to facilitate self-supporting efforts of disaster victims on the 29th October, 2011 (Sat).
The venue is Kawasaki Public Hall, Ichinoseki. Panellists who themselves suffered great losses of loved ones or properties due to the earthquake will talk about how they face the reality as well as their active involvement in welfare activities.
We hope to welcome as many as possible of the tsunami victims and people in the area and to offer an opportunity to lift their spirit and have some useful clues to rebuild their lives.

Pakistani Curry Party (2nd October, 2011, at the temporary house in Okiarai Aza Horei, Sanriku-cho, Ofunato)

Reported by Ryu and Tahel, Staff of Rentai Tohoku 
We held a Pakistani Curry Party at the temporary house in Okiarai Aza Horei, Sanriku-cho, Ofunato-city on the 2nd October (Sun).
With cooperation from Ofunato Social Welfare Council and Nippon International Cooperation for Community Development, we aimed at enhancing communication among the residents through the party.

 

○Horei Temporary House
As the houses near Horei Station were all destroyed by tsunami, a benefactor (Mr. O) offered his field in the mountains to build the temporary house. 30 families including Mr. O's (about 100 people) live there.

People started to prepare curry at 9 o'clock in the morning.
The residents had been looking forward to the event since they heard about it two weeks before.

(Comment from a volunteer staff)
Together, we started preparation by chopping vegetables etc.
But it was embarrassing when our clumsiness raised a laugh among the residents.
Then we watched foreign volunteers spectacularly cook curry in a huge pot.
The residents were so interested in the unusual way to cook curry.
Unless I had practiced to cook SALAM (peace) curry in the previous evening,
I myself would have doubted if it was indeed curry that they were making.
However, the taste of the actual outcome was fantastic. I was so happy
to be there as a volunteer when I heard everybody saying they wanted the recipe.

 

○Party
As the space of the meeting room was limited, the residents took turns to have curry

in groups of 20. Some ate up as much as three portions.
