Ayaz and Nadeem are workers with Humanity First, a humanitarian organization that has been working worldwide since the Yugoslavian crisis in the ’90s. They are emigres from Pakistan who have chosen to live and work in Japan. Nadeem has a Japanese wife and lives in Nagoya. When the Tohoku disaster occurred, Nadeem , reluctantly said goodbye to his 1-month baby daughter so he could bring relief to Tohoku. For 8 hard weeks, the two lived on the floor of the Minato-sho Shelter’s gymnasium, serving curry to the victims. In spite of such personal challenges inherent in doing relief work in the face of a “Thousand-Year Tsunami” these heroes sacrificed themselves for the victims. They are living proof that compassion is universal, regardless of country of origin.
