Uncertain future

3 months after the disastar, I have heard from my father about the difficulty facing 100 evacuees from Fukushima, who are now housed in a summer camp facility in Okutama, just west of Tokyo.

Though most families are physically safe and settled in the camp, some of the elderly have passed away as the stress took its toll while being evacuated from their own homes. Also, the future for these families is uncertain due to lack of work.

They have now not only lost their homes, businesses, but also their community, their history and personal memories.

The Okutama summer camp facility is able to accommodate these people, but the question is for how long? Where do they go from here?

I am simply stunned at this situation knowing that it is only one corner of vast problems facing Japan where nearly 200,000 people have been displaced.
