Our Objectives

On March 11, 2011, our life suddenly changed. "Can we pick up acorns in that forest?"
"Can we lie down in the shade of a tree that blocks hot summer sun rays?"
Since March 15, 2011, when a radioactive plume passed over the Kanto region, young mothers' worries have become anxieties. We studied about radiation, Iodine-131, and common thyroid disorders. After that, we had come to regret having our children play outside and randomly giving them water and milk.
We are concerned about the effects of the initial radiation exposure on our children.

Even now radioactive "hot spots" scattered around the Kanto region and high doses of air radiation continue to affect our everyday lives, while significantly influencing children`s bodies.

Even though the government should have taken responsibility and organized continuous health monitoring for people living not only in Fukushima Prefecture but also in radiation-affected areas outside Fukushima Prefecture, concrete measures have not been proposed yet.

A large number of children in the Fukushima prefecture have already been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.
Grasping health conditions of exposed children in the Kanto region is also an urgent issue which can not wait any longer.

Therefore, we decided to establish a fund that would call for a system in which the government takes responsibility for children's health management.
The fund is also for citizens to bring in funds for monitoring their own children's health.

In order to identify the actual condition and to enable early detection and treatment of diseases through examining the data that reflect the current situation and annual changes of the children's body, the fund is going to undertake the following:

  1. Coordinate the planning and management of health screening.
  2. Solicit volunteer doctors and advisers to advance our health screening process.
  3. In principle, data and pictures belong to examinees and their guardians.
  4. Since radiation can cause long-term effects on human health, the work of the fund is organized in a way that would ensure the continuity of our initiative.
  5. Cooperate with local citizen groups that conduct air monitoring, soil measurement, etc. to deepen the relationship between our examinees and environment.
  6. Make efforts to hold study meetings and public lectures conducted by experts such as physicians; to share information among experts, and to disseminate the knowledge and deepen the understanding among fund members and examinees.
  7. Establish a system of comprehensive health screening in assistance with local citizens and in cooperation with community medical institutions.
