(1/2)Ms.Murase:We sent 3000 school counselors to disaster areas. And each prefecture also sent their counselors. Doctors,too. Emergency
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(2/2)support needed. Still needed now. We opended 'community cafes at those areas.' Need to relate person to person.

(1/3)Mr.Ishibashi:Came from Ishinomaki RedCross Hospital.Tsunami hit disaster.Now inside the sea became clean again. Fishermen are hoping
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(2/3)for fish. I talk about the situation of our hospital, after the tsunami hit times. Each stuff had in different situations. We had to
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(3/3)work together even our situations were different. Each o f them did what they could do.
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(1/4)Some staffs needed to work less. They needed to rest. And then work some while, and then rest again. Other staffs lost their
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(2/4)families. They did need to work longer. They had so much pain in their mind. They suffered if they didn't have any work to do. Our
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(3/4)hospital was located 4.5km from the sea. Tsunami came, but our hospital was almost okay. It had a base-isolated structure against
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(4/4)earthquakes.It saved our lives.
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(1/4)At that time, City hospital was inoperable. Onagawa Town hospital, even 20m above sea level, was submerged. Staffs of OgatsuTown's

I mean the hospital staffs were deceased. Not the hospital died.

hiroki @hirokiharoki
(2/4)hospital died in the line of duty. So,basically, our Ishinomaki RedCrossHospital was the only left hospital of the area, at that
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(3/4)time. All the patients came to here. Lucky for us, many of them were not in serious condition. (But in other words, most of the
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(4/4)people engulfed by tsunami were dead.)
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(1/5)We somehow managed to continue our hospital operation after the tsunami. YUZU and many other professional singers came to Ishinomaki.
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(2/5)Cheer up concerts were very good. Look at this photo on our screen. Not only patients,but staffs were smiling so happily. We all got
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(3/5)full of will again. More than 10 emargency hostital cars per day. New patients arrived. After the tsunami, and for 2weeks. We
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(4/5)suffered so much mental and physical stresses. "When will this end?" We all thought. Not much food, mot much sleep. But we did our
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(5/5)best and struggled through.
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(1/4)In a way, it was same as usual. We learned the importance of everyday's usual medical treatments again. Talk about 'black' area. It
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(2/4)was a temp morturary. First, we only had blankets for each bodies. Later, we finally got body bags and could treat them with respect
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(3/4)and politeness. Staffs' work changed so much after the tsunami. Staffs who never treated bodies before, got stressed much and became
hiroki @hirokiharoki
(4/4)ill. They had been ordinary office workers before tsunami.
