quote of the day
Financial support should be given regardless of whether the evacuees have relatives or other acquaintances in Japan. Depending on the situation, they might not even be able to pay for medical fees in the event of an emergency. This has brought to the fore the reality of an insufficient support system for not only Ukrainians, but for foreigners in Japan as a whole.
