Donation to Tsunami Orphans
In order to assist orphans who lost their parents in the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, Casio has been donating to the Ashinaga Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami Orphans Fundraising Campaign since fiscal 2012. In fiscal 2021, Casio donated 2 million yen, as it did the previous year (accumulated total: 23 million yen). Casio plans to continue to donate to the campaign through fiscal 2022.
Supporting the Sanriku Volunteer Divers
Yamagata Casio Co., Ltd. supported the activities of the Sanriku Volunteer Divers, providing four sets of Logosease underwater communication equipment and one set of terrestrial equipment to enable communication between the land and water.
Sanriku Volunteer Divers is a non-profit organization that conducts activities aimed at restoring the Sanriku coast, which was damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The group strives for restoration in the true sense, ranging from work to remove debris such as ropes from aquaculture facilities damaged by the tsunami through the release of abalone spats, surveys of rocky shore denudation, transplant of eelgrass, mother algae installation and creating mechanisms to restore delivery of seafood to consumers.
Hiroshi Sato, the group’s representative, commented, “When investigating debris, the water sometimes quickly becomes cloudy, but we can work with peace of mind because we’re able to check where other divers are and communicate with one another with Logosease. At sites of seaweed bed regeneration, it is very helpful because teams can communicate wirelessly when working together in the water more than 10 meters apart. Also, during seaweed bed regeneration, we have material input from the ship, and Logosease allows us to operate safely underwater while communicating with the ship. By using a full facemask in combination with Logosease, very clear conversation is possible even on wireless radio.”
