●We received the following comment from the owner, Mrs. Maeno, regarding our support.

I was happy when I found Ukraine Humanitarian Support Fund online. My child is a student at Tohoku University, so when I found out about this fundraiser, I thought this was it. I thought it was good that the use of the donation was clear, such as support for students, and that the donation would reach people in close proximity.
As far as I see on the news, the number of people asking for support is increasing, and I believe that the situation will continue to be very difficult, so I will keep my interest in this project for a long time, even if it is a small one.

(Kumiko Maeno, Owner, Book Cafe “Kasei no niwa”)




We would like to express our sincere appreciation for your support of the donation fund set up by us and for expanding our efforts.
Your warm support will be utilized for our continuous support, while we listen to each and every one of the various voices that Ukraine sends to our university on a daily basis.
We sincerely appreciate your continued understanding and support.

※① 蔵書票とは、本の見返しに貼って本の持ち主を示すためのもので、票主の名前を図案に入れて銅版画や木版画などの技法で制作され、1点ずつ作家のサインとシリアルナンバーが入る特注品。国内外の多くのコレクターを有する美術品の一つ。
※① Ex libris are bookplates that are affixed to the front end of a book to indicate the owner of the book. It is a custom-made item that is produced using copperplate or woodblock printing techniques with the name of the voter in the design, and each piece is signed and serial numbered by the artist. It is one of the art works that have many collectors in Japan and abroad.

NIIZAWA SAKE BREWERY has offered to assist our project(3/29)




代表取締役の新澤 巖夫さんは、今回のウクライナ侵攻のニュースに触れ、すぐに支援を思い立ったそうです。そして、社員である本学同窓生・板井 遼太さん(2018年農学研究科修了)を通じて、東北大学へ有難いお申し出をいただきました。
At the same time as the University’s call for Ukraine Humanitarian Support Fund, we received an offer of support from Niizawa Sake Brewery, a Miyagi Prefecture brewery founded in 1873.
Niizawa Brewery is famous for its “Hakurakusei” and “Atago no Matsu” sake breweries, which are well known to many sake lovers. The brewery has been operating in Sambongi, Osaki City for about 140 years, but the Great East Japan Earthquake completely destroyed the brewery and devastated the area. In November 2011, the brewery relocated its production department to its current location in Kawasaki-Cho and resumed sake production.
President Iwao Niizawa was touched by the news of the recent invasion of Ukraine and immediately thought of providing support. He then made a grateful offer to Tohoku University through one of the employees, Ryota Itai, a Tohoku University alumnus (graduated from the Graduate School of Agricultural Science in 2018).





●What are your thoughts on this offer?
(Mr. Niizawa)When we experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake, we received support from many people. Based on that experience, we wanted to return the favor. What we can do is to provide dormitories and places to work for internship students. Our employee Yamagishi will provide support at the dormitory.

●Why did you contact Tohoku University in the first place?
(Mr. Itai)I am a graduate of Tohoku University. Many international students studied together with me when I was a student at the university, and I realized that it is a very internationally-minded university. When I learned about the news from Ukraine, I contacted Tohoku University in the hope that the university’s international responsiveness and sense of speed would be utilized to connect those in need with the support offered by my alma mater.

●What impact do you hope your support will have?
(Mr. Niizawa)We look forward to Tohoku University’s alumni network and experienced international support. We sincerely hope that we can save as many people as possible.
