Forest Spirit Healing Project for Children in Fukushima

AEON 1% Club invites children who remain unable to return to their hometowns in Fukushima Prefecture after evacuating the area in the wake of the nuclear power plant accident to spend time in Afan Woodland (in Shinano town, Nagano Prefecture) restored by the renowned naturalist Mr. C. W. Nicol. The nature-based activites in the woods have healing effects on the children.
