Hello, this is Chiiko from Y&F.
This is my first blog entry here :)

First of all, let me tell you about Yurick&herFriends, shall I?
Yurick&herFriends was organized to create an information website about Kanemi Yusho Disease. Seven Japanese members of various occupations are currently involved in this organization.
Originally we became friends in an English learning SNS. In September this year, one of us, Yurick, proposed to create a website for those who suffer from the Yusho Disease and want more information on it...That was the beginning.

At first we didn't know much about the Kanemi Yusho Incident, though it was the worst food contamination incident caused by dioxin-like compounds. We knew very few about what happened, where and when it occurred, or how its victims are now. So we got started with such basic facts. It seemed to us that it would be a long way, but we have come here! We launched our website in less than a month.

As Y&F members live around Japan, we get in touch online, the SNS or Twitter. We don't know each member's real name, age, face or address. We, however, feel the bonds of friendship :)

Yurick&herFriends continues to send out useful information and voice of the Yusho victims. I would like you to visit our website and learn more about the Yusho Disease.

Thank you so much for reading my post!
Wow, it's over 1:30 AM already!! I'll be off to bed for now. See you!

Chiiko
