On Tuesday, March 15, RWB Company dancers Yosuke Mino and Yayoi Ezawa were interviewed on CBC Radio about the difficult situation in their home country of Japan.
We would like invite you, the many fans and followers of Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, to visit the Japan Relief page on the CBC website to learn more about what you can do to help.
From the website:
On March 11th, a 9.0 earthquake - the world’s most powerful recorded in history - struck Japan. This impact triggered a destructive tsunami.
Since then, the coast has been hit by more than 150 aftershocks.
The effects of these disasters have displaced Japanese families from their loved ones. Now many are missing, fires have spread, buildings destroyed, towns wiped out and over millions left without water and electricity.
But even in the wake of disaster, there’s always hope. Your contribution can provide emergency supplies and relief required to help those in need.
