Yahoo News reported that on May 13, an unnamed man donated 1 million yen (about 182 million VND) to a junior high school in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.
This man arrived at school in a taxi around o’clock in the afternoon and handed an envelope to the clerk and said, “I want to send this to the principal” without leaving any personal information.
After he left, the envelope was examined. Inside was 1 million yen in cash along with a letter that read “Don’t lose to Corona. Please help the children. (I) graduated in 1950“.
Shinji Makishima, the principal of Kiyase Middle School where the letter was received, said:I was in a very stressful situation, but fortunately the school supported me a lot“.
According to the School Board of Education, the money raised will be used to support the students.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, Japan has recorded 8.76 million cases and more than 30,000 deaths. After a time when the epidemic situation calmed down at the end of last year, the number of cases has increased dramatically since the beginning of this year, even though the coverage rate of 2 doses of the vaccine is over 80%.
Due to the impact of the epidemic, the Japanese economy has been severely affected. The yen saw a weakness not seen in decades, pushing inflation higher. Prices of consumer goods in this country are witnessing the fastest increase in the past 7 years.
Recently, the Japanese government has also decided to reopen tourism and welcome foreign tourists in early June and continue to relax epidemic prevention measures.
