Charity Handmade Poster for rasing fund.
We have all been so affected by the devastation and suffering that have befallen the people of northern Japan as a result of the earthquake, the tsunami, and the following nuclear crisis. As an artist, I am using the one power that I have to help, by starting a new project called Yes Japan. Through a series of prints with positive messages, I hope to begin to turn things around: the unease cased by confusing information, the fear of radiation, and the worries brought on by scarcity of resources. Together, we can bring hope and help the people who are suffering.
My motivation is the people who have faced and are continuing to face unthinkable hardships amidst the ongoing crisis: lack of food and water, no shelter, and no way to comfort their children.
A mother who has not eaten for days stops being able to produce breast milk for her baby. The hungry baby cries, and out of consideration for others, the mother goes out into the freezing cold with her crying infant. Like this woman, many in Japan are confronting an extremely sad situation that they cannot change by themselves.
A doctor saw his hospital building torn apart by the tsunami. Patients were swept away right before the doctor's eyes, while he and others managed to escape to the roof. While they waited for rescue for two days, he saw seven people on the roof die by hypothermia and suffocation caused by muddy water. This doctor, who is tasked with saving lives, had to watch, unable to help, as his patients were lost in this terrible way.
On the afternoon of the day he was rescued, his wife gave birth to their first child. The miracle of life couldn't have been more real to him on that day.
It's been just over a week since the earthquake, and the supply shortages continue, along with fears about nuclear radiation. Someone who has been saved can still die due to a shortage of supplies. This kind of tragedy continues.
