About the town damaged by the earthquake a year ago.
Nagata was badly damaged by the earthquake.
A year has passed after the earthquake but the town has not yet recovered .
In Nagata, low-income households and elderly people have been living shoulder to shoulder.
As we are so weak, we do not have enough power to rebuild our town.
Besides, the Japanese government has not provided any security for these people.
As a result, the houses have not been rebuilt, the residents who have moved to various places still cannot come back and as there are not many residents, only some of the shops there have reopened.
All of these together being the cause, the people of Nagata is still suffering.
