Annual Report of the Sata Foundation for the Year 2021
I. Support for Other Foundations
(1) Aid for Afghanistan
After the collapse of the Afghan Government and the Taliban’s takeover of the country in August 2021, Afghanistan has had humanitarian crises that have generated widespread international concerns. Foreign aids provided by other governments and international organizations have been largely hindered due to sanctions imposed on the Taliban as well as logistic difficulties in their transportation to and distribution for those Afghans in dire need.
1. The Community-Well Project to provide clean water to an entire Afghan village;
2. The Water-Well Project to provide clean water around the clock to 900 people in the Bagrami district, in the eastern suburb of the capital city of Kabul; and
3. Food pack distribution for three needy Afghan families for one month while awaiting the arrival of international food aids.
(2) Human Rights at Sea (https://www.humanrightsatsea.org/)
In December 2020, the Sata Foundation donated to Human Rights at Sea, a charity engaged in protecting persons at risk at sea, including refugees escaping from war-torn countries in Africa who find themselves in serious danger on unsafe boats in the Mediterranean Sea.
(3) Other possible donations
The Sata Foundation continued to explore possibilities of making other donations. However, the global COVID-19 pandemic caused difficulties in communications. In other cases, requests were made for contributions by already well-funded charities.
II. The Madonna of Nagasaki and World Peace
Run for Peace Rally 2021
Since 2005, the Sata Foundation has sponsored the “Run for Peace” Cycling Rally in France to commemorate the anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (on 6 and 9 August 1945, respectively) and to promote public awareness of the human sufferings caused by the use of nuclear weapons as well as the need to ensure that scientific knowledge is used for human health and well-being, and not as weapons of destruction.
III. Upholding World Peace and Human Rights
The Executive Director of the Sata Foundation published a 314-page book, entitled The Rohingya, Justice and International Law (Routledge, 1 November 2021).
