Acknowledgment
Financial assistance towards the cost of this Recital has been received from The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and practical assistance from The Japan Society and Father Andrew Cameron-Mowat SJ, Parish Priest, and other members of the Farm Street Church team.

The charity appeals
The recital is taking place on the evening after the third anniversary of the Tohoku disaster in Japan. The Japan Society’s appeal has been active in funding rehabilitation and education projects in the affected areas.

In the Autumn of 2013, the Haiyan typhoon, one of the worst in the region in recorded history, hit parts of the Philippines resulting in an estimated over 6,000 killed, 23,501 injured and 1,613 missing, damaging 1,112,731 homes with a total of 2,157,529 families (nearly 11 million people) affected. Jesuit Missions, a UK charity, has joined forces with the massive relief efforts still continuing to help victims of this typhoon.

Proceeds from tonight’s performance will be split between the Japan Society’s Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund and the Jesuit Missions’ Philippines Haiyan Typhoon Appeal.
