What we can do for Fukushima

The Grate East Japan Earthquake happened on March 11th in 2011 when I was a third year student in junior high school. The incident was a shock to Japan and the whole world, so it became a serious problem for not only Japan but also the whole world. The major earthquake with a magnitude of 9.0 caused the big tsunami. They did a lot of great damage in the area for example, many buildings were destroyed, many people drowned and were killed. Because of them, Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station also suffered a big damage. Fukushima prefecture still has many big problems now. This time, I would like to tell you about the present condition in Fukushima, and please think with me about what we can do to help Fukushima. First, I will write about the present condition in Fukushima, secondly about what big problems Fukushima has, thirdly about what we can do for Fukushima, and then I will write a conclusion.
First, I will focus on the accident that was caused by Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. How did the disaster happen? When the earthquake and the tsunami happened, a very serious nuclear accident with radioactive substances occurred, and polluted water was flowing to the ocean. In addition, the radioactive substances have been polluting the Fukushima area since the accident happened. People cannot see and feel them, so they are too dangerous for people and if they go to the area, they must wear a special clothes like a spacesuit to protect them from dangerous accidents. However, it is difficult for us to stay a long time, so people can stay there for a short time in order to go to their home to find their important things and so on. I hope I was able to give you a better image of the present condition in Fukushima
Secondly, I will write about what big problem Fukushima has. As you might guess as I have mentioned in the first body, it is very difficult for us to clean this area. It will take a long time until they can live safely in these areas. This is a big problem for them, but these areas are starting to recover.
Thirdly, I will write about what we are able to do for them. If the media told us more about the present situation, we could think about what we can do to help. I want them to expose the whole truth about the present condition of Fukushima. I think they hide much information (maybe better many facts), so we cannot get more information. If they tell us the truth thorough the media like the TV, we can think about what we can do. I think we can help them to work by working as a volunteer, providing relief goods like water and food, and so on. Some areas are recovering, but some areas are not, so we should help these areas.
In conclusion, this problem is difficult for us, but we can do something for them. Let’s think deeply about it and do what we can do. Thank you for reading.
