TOKYO-Thousands of miles in terms of distance certainly was not enough to keep six-year old Shoichi Kondoh from feeling compassion for Filipinos, not thinking twice about giving away his painstakingly saved-up piggyback savings as part of t…he ever-growing international relief aid.
Accompanied by his mother, Miho Kondoh, Shoichi visited the Philippine Embassy in Japan to hand over JPY 5,000. Shoichi said he was moved to donate his savings after witnessing the extent of destruction the Philippines experienced from Super Typhoon Yolanda on television.
Consul Dexter Lao expressed the embassy’s gratitude for the sincere gesture of kindness and sympathy from the boy, now the embassy’s youngest donor.
