On June 11, 2014, a group of friends on the Mendocino coast met to welcome Yumi Kikuchi. She and her husband co-founded Fukushima Kids, Hawaii. Since children are most vulnerable to radiation Yumi and her husband Gen are bringing them, and even their mothers when they are very young, to Hawaii for healing periods of three or more weeks.

Yumi has for over 20 years worked on campaigns against nuclear power plants with Dr. Helen Caldicott and the artist and activist Mayumi Oda. That's why she and her her husband immediately after the Fukushima accident decided to take their own children off her farm 150 miles from the Fukushima reactors. Even on her way out of Japan via Okinawa, Yumi organized to bring over 260 pregnant women out of Fukushima.

Once in Hawaii she began organizing for housing and a new farm to help children from Fukushima. They spend free vacations to recover from the impact of daily doses of radiation. Her husband Gen Morita is a traditional Japanese healer who specializes in restring immune systems. You can find more information, including a couple of You-tube film on the website of
Debra Scott, Harvey Wasserman and Joe Mangano
