Please watch this video.

The two girls in the video are Kana and Maria:
Kana is 17 years old. She lost both parents in the Tsunami and now she lives with her grandmother who is 74 years old and her younger brother Kento who is 15. Her grandmother is not well and has a bad leg.
Kana loves Harry Potter and reading books. She also likes studying English, and baking.
Maria is 11 years old. She lost her parents, grandparents and a younger brother because of the Tsunami. At first she lived with her uncle but he lost his job so she left his house one month later. Then she moved to be with another other uncle but he had already lost his wife in the Tsunami and things were difficult. She left this uncle one month later. Now she lives in an orphanage.
She is interested in England, and would like to visit. She likes Manga and drawing pictures. She also likes dogs and has many friends at school.
We want to invite them to England in December. We shall try our best for fund raising. If you can help us, we really appreciate this.
