Let me introduce Save Iwate's information:( only in Japanese )
This is volunteer organization and therefore, they do move quickly and practically.
( At the moment, official work is taking time ie: for donation allocation etc...)
As I mentioned previously, major centers receive supplies first.
There are small evacuee centers still short of supplies.
When you send items in boxes or envelopes, please write on the top what's in side.
It takes extra time for them sorting out the items.
ie) Soaps and Shampoos
