The Saginuma Rotary Club which performs philanthropy activities in Kawasaki-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture visited the Fukushima Prefecture School for the Deaf in Koriyama-shi stricken by the 3/11 Great East Japan Earthquake, and presented two large-sized refrigerators which can be used in the dormitory on April 22.

The club continues support such as fund-raising after the earthquake disaster, and this time was planned as part of their support.

Eighteen club members and their families arrived at the school. The Deaf student representative expressed his gratitude to the Club for their help.

One of the Rotary Club member said, "Some students had changed to another school for refuge to the outside of the prefecture. We hope our project would encourage the remaining students."
