In 2020, we are very grateful to the staff and other volunteers and donors of supplies for their help in providing goods and distributing masks, especially during the pandemic.

The counsellor listened to me and gave me advice on how to improve, which made me feel much better than before. I hope services like this for Japanese people will keep continuing.

I called because I felt it was hard to live. I haven’t been able to smile for months, but at the end of the one-hour counselling session, I was able to laugh and smile a bit. I’ve only used the service once at that time, but it really saved me. Thank you very much!

I live in Montreal and you kindly counselled me over the phone for more than an hour. Thank you very much.
