Sophia Refugee Support Group (SRSG)

Update posted by Mami Yanagida On May 19, 2020



Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are currently unable to continue with our usual activities However, we are still active and intend to stay connected with the refugees and asylum seekers in Japan through food deliveries and letter sending activities. Moreover, we continue to spread awareness about the refugee situation through online. Please check out our Instagram (@sophia.srsg) and Twitter account (@sophia_srsg) to see more of our current activities!

Refugees and asylum seekers are arguably among the most vulnerable populations in this time of the coronavirus pandemic. They are unable to find jobs, receive no health insurance, and the support groups that assist them have temporarily shut down. Hence, we would like to raise money in order to continue on giving support to refugees, specifically for our food deliveries, which we have begun to do and are planning to continue on doing twice a month.

Our group is currently unable to have other means of fundraising as physical classes and activities in our university has been suspended to adhere to social distancing and to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus. We understand that the world is currently in a difficult situation, but we think that this situation is even worse for refugees and asylum seekers.

We appreciate any amount of money to help our refugee friends overcome this pandemic. Please stay safe!


コロナウイルスの影響により、現在私たしSRSGは普段の活動を中止しておりますが、手紙やインターネットを通じた難民の方々との交流を取ろうと努力しています。先日、メンバーたちは、今なかなか手に入らないマスクを手作りし、難民の方々に送りました。また、日本最大のフードバンク、セカンドハーベストジャパンの援助を介して、食料品を30箱それぞれの難民のご自宅に配送しました。私たちのインスタグラム(@sophia.srsg)またはツイッター (@sophia_srsg) に最近の活動をアップしているのでをチェックしてみてください!
