  3. To provide information to any individuals/groups who request it and to keep the media more aware of the DU issue.

This group was initiated by Ms. Masako Ito, representative of the Friendship Society between Children of Japan and Arab. She has visited Iraq again and again, on bringing in medical supplies as aid materials. She also attended the International Peace Conference in The Hague, May 1999. Through the exchange with various organizations worldwide, she recognized that the consequences of DU have become an international problem. The sense of crisis impending due to DU made her establish this group in Japan.

We are requesting for another publishing on the report in Japanese. Please your help !
