So Many Hands

Today we have 81 people working on Project Tohoku. Teams are working furiously to remove sludge, strip floorboards and drywall, remove and sanitise furniture, and move, purchase and organise tools. Working in a school, a municipal building, a hotel and four homes eight teams battled high winds and chilly weather and accomplished a huge amount. Three sites were finished by the early afternoon. Assessment teams are now racing to find more work to keep all these willing hands busy in the coming days.

Go teams!
