IWAKI CITY, JAPAN – Plans were announced today to build a support centre for children with disabilities in Japan as part of Canada's and British Columbia's effort to aid reconstruction following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The Jericho Support Centre will provide rehabilitation and training services for children with physical and mental disabilities in the Tohoku region. Following the tsunami and ensuing Fukushima nuclear crisis more than 1,000 patients with physical and mental disabilities were evacuated from the nuclear exclusion zone and tsunami-hit communities.
