Fukushima Kids Hawaii House
Located in a quiet residencial area of Kailua Kona, the house can host up to 3 families at a time for 1 to 3 months for free. The house is run by donations only. Babies are more susceptible to radiatoin and a respite from radiation exposure is effective from the experiences of Chernobyl.
