We are extremely grieved and worried to see the destructions and devastations on media the people of Japan are suffering the current tsunami disaster. It is very painful for all of us and all the time we are watching television channels to know the situation moment to moment.
Due to our long relationship Japanese are very close to us and their pains and discomforts are equally felt by us. We are constantly praying God to help you people and give courage to come out of all difficulties and hardships and give you patience to bear loss of life and property.
God help you.

Solidarity Message for Ai Coop Consumer’s Cooperative and to the people of Sendai City and Japan

The world watched in helplessness as Sendai City, Japan was hit by horrifying tsunami last March 11, 2011 after an earlier earthquake that was Japan’s strongest in its history.

Our hearts pour in sorrow and moral anguish to the people who lost love ones and left homeless. We understand the burden of sorrow…that seems joys and laughter were just distant memories. In these times of crisis, we see the best of human characters: people caring from one another.

Allow your friends across the seas…from Negros, to carry some of your loads. We offer our consolations and prayers as you move towards healing of pains. And the ones we lost will forever be with our memories…

The Japan consumer coop movement is among Negros’ best friend. We pray that all be well again.

In solidarity
