Visit of Mrs Hiramatsu to The Yamuna Centre

We were honoured to welcome Mrs Hiramatsu, wife of the Ambassador of Japan, and the Japanese Volunteer Group to our Yamuna Centre on January 15th 2019. Mrs Hiramatsu graciously donated school books to all the children. We are deeply grateful for this donation.

The ladies organised an origami activity with the children that was enjoyed by all.

Our association with the Japanese Volunteer group began in 2006 and is still going strong.

ありがとうございます Arigatou gozaimasu.
