TOKYO – Six-year old Shoichi Kondoh did not think twice about giving away his childhood savings for the benefit of the victims of super typhoon ‘Yolanda’ after watching the devastation on television.

Accompanied by his mother, Miho Kondoh, Shoichi visited the Philippine Embassy today to personally hand-over his donation of JPY 5,000 taken from his piggybank savings.
Consul Bryan Dexter Lao expressed the embassy’s gratitude for this very sincere gesture of kindness and sympathy from the embassy’s youngest cash donor. –END
