FEED THE HOMELESS MINISTRY - Yokohama

Issho ni yarimashou ka? Let's start our week with full of blessings as we share our time to feed the homeless. You're invited to join this Sunday Activity (Cooking and Distribution to Homeless Folks)! This activity is regularly supported by folks from Atsugi and Yokosuka bases as well as parishioners from Yamate Catholic Church in Yokohama. The pictures will tell you why ALL concerned folks from the international community should join for the camaraderie as we prepare and distribute more CURRY RICE to the helpless and homeless folks. The more food we could share, the more homeless folks we could feed. We need more hands to help this noble undertaking. You can share food donations as well. Just scroll down the page and you will learn more about the donation kinds that could be sent instead of cash donation. For interested parties and sponsors, please contact Ms. Girlie Ota (founder of the Sunday Circle - Feed the Homeless Ministry) at Mobile No. +81 (0) 9084516756 or Tel No. +81 (0)

I asked Our Lord God,
"Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you?"
Our Lord said,
"Truly I say to you as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren you did it to me."

In Japan today, we see many people with no permanent houses...there are many homeless people living on the streets. We see them anywhere, most of them sleeping in boxes. The struggle for survival is becoming worse for many and for most of them, the only food they get is what they scavenge from the garbages... and this is a saddening reality in Japan.

The video: http://www.tpmovers.org/Feed_the_Homeless_Yokohama.htm

There is a group in Yokohama that helps these homeless people. Dubbed as Feed the Homeless Ministry is a brigade of volunteers from Sacred Heart Parish in Yamate and volunteers from Atugi and Yokosuka bases. The group prepares a regular Sunday meal for these homeless people. This activity happens every Sunday. It was spearheaded by Mr. and Mrs. Ota who are regular parishioners of Sacret Heart Parish in Yamate - cho, Yokohama. The ministry helps feed more than 100 homeless and starving people every Sunday.

The activity starts from cooking the curry, mizo shiro soup and rice at around 6:30 in the evening at the Ota couple's place near the Sacred Heart Parish. Packing comes after then followed by the distribution where volunteers feed the homeless in the stations all the way to the stadium in Yokohama.

ALL concerned individuals from the international community could come for an experience as we prepare and distribute more CURRY RICE to the helpless and homeless people in Yokohama. The more food we could share, the more homeless people we could feed. We definitely need more hands to help this noble undertaking. You can share food donations instead of cash. These could be curry powder, Japanese rice, packing materials and so on. The list of food and packing donations appears in the website of the ministry.

For interested parties and sponsors, please contact Mrs. Ota (founder of the Sunday Circle - Feed the Homeless Ministry) through e-mail tpmovers@gmail.com .
