About Second Hand

Second Hand is a non-profit organization based in Takamatsu city, Kagawa prefecture, Japan.

It mainly provides sustainable development assistance to Cambodia via its Japanese second hand stores and fund-raising efforts.

During the Kobe earthquake of 1995, Second Hand provided assistance to people in the form of emergency supplies and items to help improve the quality of their life once emergency supplies were in place.

Today Second Hand is doing the same for the people of Miyagi. It is collecting information, providing goods and accepting donations to help with the immediate disaster. It will continue to provide help with the longer term re-development efforts.

You can asssit Second Hand by donating. Your money will be used solely to assist people affected by this terrible natural disaster. Please remember that every Euro, Dollar or Yen makes a real difference.

You can make donations through PayPal with your credit card even if you do not have a PayPal account. Our account is jimukyoku2hand@yahoo.co.jp.
Our registration as a non-profit organization account on Paypal is currently pending.
