Terremoto

Postby Francesca on Fri Mar 11, 2011 1:38 pm

Un très fort tremblement de terre et un tsunami ont dévasté le Japon.

Nous espérons que nos amies japonaises, que nous ne voyons plus ici, sont saines et sauves ainsi que leurs familles.

Hi, I'm a Japanese fan but I live in Australia. Thank you for your kind words. I'm pleased to report both Motoko and Setsuko are safe and well as I have heard from them. Naturally, we are still in shock to see all the tragedies unfolding in so many districts in Japan.

Thank you everyone for the kind consideration. I and my family are all right in Yokohama. If your friends live in the Tokyo-Yokohama area, please don't worry about them. People in the Tokyo area are well-informed and well-prepared. This will be the worst disaster we have experienced but we are trying the best with wisdom and courage.

So glad to hear that you are okay, Motoko, and your children also!

I hope that all of Andrea's Japanese fans will send word as to how they are doing.

Our hearts are with you. You are a strong people who have suffered much in the past and I believe that you will overcome this terrible tragedy as well.

Fifty-three brave Jewish men, women--doctors, nurses, medics and logistical soldiers from the Israel Defense Force--are now saving lives in Japan.

Israel was the only nation accepted by the Japan government to send a medical team to one of the many disaster areas in Japan following a devastating 9.0 magnitude earthquake and lethal tsunami which has killed over 10,000 Japanese.

The Japan city of Minami-Sanriko had a population of 23,000 of which over 8,000 died in the tsunami floods.

The earthquake took place on March 11 and by March 20 the first IDF soldiers arrived in Japan to provide medical assistance. To date the IDF has treated hundreds of men, women and children with the mayor of Minami-Sanriko being the first patient.

These brave volunteer doctors and nurses from Israel are only 160 kilometers from the leaking nuclear reactors in Fukushima. Their only defense from the radiation are the plastic radiation detecting dosimeters that they are wearing

The Israel Defense Forces has brought their own food, water and medicine from Israel for themselves and for their patients. They are career and reserve soldiers from the IDF Homefront Command and Medical Corps ready to operate using a variety of mobile medical equipment including x-ray and ultra sound. The Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that all medical equipment will be left behind as a donation to the people of Japan.

Japan’s Ambassador to Israel, Haruhisa Takeuchi, delivered a heart-felt thank you to the IDF medical delegation: “I thank you, the crew of medical personnel, from the bottom of my heart, for volunteering to help in the aftermath of this tragedy and for carrying out this difficult mission.”

The ambassador from Japan also thanked the entire nation of Israel for standing so strongly by his nation.

Volunteeers from IsraAid, Zaka and Chabad - humanitarian aid organizations based in Israel, are also operating in Japan.

Japan Deputy Foreign Minister Kikuta said that the good relationship between Israel and Japan will be strengthened due to the arrival of the IDF medical delegation to help in the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan in March.

"Your excellent work here, which was impossible to ignore, is very much appreciated by us and the Japanese people," said Kikuta while touring the IDF humanitarian base.

Andrea was a speaker at an Italian government conference to launch an initiative to collect funds to aid Japan from the private sector and also to explain what actions the Italian government will take to aid Japan. Government and the private sectors were represented, with Andrea representing the cultural sector. Some of the articles also carried a few of his words (followed by my translation):

Tra le tante personalità che hanno preso la parola anche ... il cantante Andrea Bocelli. Quest’ultimo si è in particolare detto “sconvolto dalla grandezza della catastrofe, ma altrettanto sconvolto dalla dignità del popolo giapponese”./Among the many well-known personalities who spoke was also the singer Andrea Bocelli. He said in particular that he was “deeply moved by the magnitude of the catastrophe, but equally deeply moved by the dignity of the Japanese people.”

http://www.ilvelino.it/articolo.php?Id=1329272&t=Giappone_Frattini_Faremo_la_nostra_parte_per_la_ricostruzione

Testimonial degli eventi è il cantante Andrea Bocelli, il quale ha ribadito oggi la "disponibilità a fare quel che è possibile per il popolo giapponese"./A representative for the initiative [to collect funds] is the singer Andrea Bocelli, who reaffirmed today his “willingness to do whatever is possible for the Japanese people.”

http://notizie.virgilio.it/notizie/esteri/2011/4_aprile/05/giappone_sisma_lanciata_iniziativa_di_solidarieta_italiana_2,29050923.html

Testimonial per la cultura sarà il tenore Andrea Bocelli. “Noi ci siamo, rispondiamo sempre come 'soldati’ a questi appelli”, ha tenuto a precisare./The repesentative for culture [in the initiative to collect funds] will be the tenor Andrea Bocelli. “We are here, we respond always like ‘soldiers’ to these appeals,” he emphasized. [Not clear from just this sentence taken out-of-context, but I believe that Andrea is referring to the cultural sector when he says “we” in this sentence.]
