The mothers of Fukushima need the support of people from all over Japan and around the world to make the Mothers’ Radiation Lab & Clinic Fukushima a reality. Help in any way you can.
The children of Fukushima are still exposed to the invisible threat of radiation. We are now urgently working to start up the Mothers’ Radiation Lab & Clinic Fukushima in April 2017.
This center will protect children by providing a one-stop shop to measure radiation in the body and surrounds, and conduct clinical checks for potential physical and psychological impacts of radiation, all in the same place.
Help us, the mothers of Fukushima. Protect the children of Fukushima from the effects of radiation. Save their lives and futures.
The Mothers’ Radiation Lab Fukushima and act beyond trust have already been working together for several years. For example, after the Fukushima nuclear disaster we together started a lab to measure beta radiation. The Mothers’ Radiation Lab Fukushima will set up the clinic itself, while act beyond trust provides the secretariat and public relations.
5 years have passed since the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Watch this to see why a new clinic is desperately needed.
It takes time for the effects of exposure to radiation to appear in the body. We learned from Chernobyl that this can be 5 to 10 years, or even more. This is why it is critical now, 5 years since the Fukushima nuclear accident, to start a clinic.
Even if there is no direct exposure to radiation, children also need psychological care to deal with the impacts of the disaster. One mother told us – “At the time, I had to restrict my son’s actions to prevent him from being exposed to radiation. But now this is having negative psychological effects.”
Thyroid cancer is well known as a health risk of exposure to radiation. This clinic will not only check thyroids, but carefully look at many other health risks, including blood tests to judge immunity levels, cataract checks, liver checks and more.
Help is needed to increase the facilities and equipment for medical checks; expand the clinic hours, which are completely dependent on voluntary doctors; and last but not least, to provide vital blood tests to children under 18 for free.
Help protect the bodies and minds of the children of Fukushima, NOW.
