JICA in FSM (January 22, 2014): On December 14, 2013, JICA Senior Volunteer Fumihiro Nakao from the College of Micronesia – Fisheries and Maritime Institute hosted an exhibition entitled “Hiroshima・Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Photo Poster Show” which was held at the Mess Hall at COM-FMI, Yap with assistance of Hiroshima Peace Culture Foundation, his students and other JICA volunteers. The event conveyed a significant message to the audience about war. Now, wars have been going on around the world and many children and many people have been affected. Mr. Nakao’s personal message to the visitors stated “The war is not a World Event that happened in the past. The war is going on in our world now. Let’s think together once again for Peace of the World”.
The event began by welcoming of visitors followed by an exhibition of posters, photographs, and books of the Atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The visitors also had the opportunity to view DVD broadcastings about the Atomic Bomb damage in Hiroshima, learned about how to fold a paper crane and made Senbazuru, which means one thousand paper crane birds, as a symbol of Peace, and many other informative activities. There were a total of fifty-five visitors at the Atomic Bomb Exhibition.
