Chef from Bangladesh serves real taste curry at the refugee shelter in Massaki, Ofunato city  


Mr. Shāh Jahān dish up hot curry and serve it to refugees.

Members of NPO, Asian People’s Friendship Society in Tokyo visited to Massaki Junior High School which is used as the shelter for refugees from East Japan Earthquake in Ofunato city, Iwate prefecture on March 27. They cooked and served curry and rice for people living temporary in the shelter. It was a heartwarming scene in that refugees enjoy eating heartfelt lunch.

Three members of the NPO visited, including Mr. Kato (NPO representative) and Mr. Shāh Jahān (46), the owner chef from the People’s Republic of Bangladesh who manages a restaurant in Itabashi, Tokyo.

They cooked 300 dishes of rather mild taste chicken coconut curry suitable for children and aged refugees. Curry was prepared in Tokyo before hand and finished in a few hours at the shelter. They dished up hot curry and served in saying, ‘Please eat much and Cheer up!’ Genuine taste of mild coconut milk and spicy curry was so attractive that some people asked additional dishes. Mr. Ikki Shiraishi, a 5th grade student from Massaki Primary School, said in good smile, ‘I ate curry after a long time. It was better than usual curry.’

‘I am glad to hear words of their gratitude. Everywhere looks terrible around here. I hope that our dish make them cheer up.’ Mr. Shāh Jahān said.
