Charity Walkathon 03-07-11

Walk for Japan!
This Charity Walkathon is organised by the former participants of the Ship for South East Asian Youth Program (SSEAYP) in collaboration and support with the Youth and Sports Department Ministry of Culture, Youth & Sports.
This project is the special project which aims to show our sympathy and sending the good strong will from all youths and the Peoples of Brunei Darussalam to our Japanese friends and their families who have suffered from the recent 13th March Earthquake and Tsunami disaster in Japan.
As a token of gratitude and in memory of all the times that the Japanese Government has paid for our expenses during the SSEAYP Program, and the Japanese people who has held a special place in our hearts. Remember all the homestays, those unforgettable times on Nippon Maru / Fuji Maru and all the brothers and sisters we made all over South East Asia.

BRUNEI's alumni of the Ship for South East Asian Youth Programme is inviting the public to join them in sending 'care notes' to quake and tsunami victims in Japan.   
SSEAYP International Brunei (Bersatu) has started the 'Heart for Japan' project in which they will send pieces of paper with handwritten notes showing support to the victims.

Our idea is that the victims can read the notes before using them for folding into paper cranes, a traditional symbol of hope for the Japanese.

We had begun collecting the notes at the start of the Youth Festival on Friday (March 2011), and will continue to collect until end of August 2011.
Included in their collection was a note signed by the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, stating "I give my warmest condolences to all who have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, My heart goes out to you in your time of sorrow".
The  SSEAYP members have close ties with the Japanese people, having spent a good amount of time with Japanese nationals aboard the ship as well as having foster families in Japan. 
"Anybody who wants to write a message to support the Japanese people, please contact us through our Facebook Fan page, the SSEAYP International Brunei.
