This project will set up a website for the recently built Chime of Hope Shopping Centre in Onagawa, Tohoku. This temporary centre, housing 50 shops, 3 banks, a post office and a police box, provides a crucial opportunity for Onagawa to boost its economy and support the remaining survivors in their hope for a full recovery. We are providing funds to create a website to help publicise the Centre and encourage visitors to give a much needed stimulus to the local economy.
