Aid Worker Blogs from Tohoku

Thanks to Janina in Kobe who introduced me to a Japanese medical aid worker's online blog that has been translated into English. This volunteer nurse relates heart-breaking experiences from her work in  post-earthquake post-tsunami Tohoku. Here's the translated header to the blog:

The following is the first English translation of the entries in a weblog by a Japanese nurse who was dispatched to Rikuzentakata, Iwate, Japan as a member of one of the first disaster medical assistance teams to be sent from Tokyo just several days after the earthquake and tsunami that struck the Tohoku region on March 11, 2011.

We cannot forget how much suffering is still going on there.
