To: Federation Presidents, Branch Masters, and Coaches
Thank you for your continuing support for and understanding of WSKO.
The earthquake that hit Sulawesi Island, Indonesia may have been of your knowledge and concern.
WSKO has tried to get in communication with the Indonesian Shorinji Kempo Federation to gather information concerning the damages. It was only recently that we have confirmed the situation in the areas due to great confusions and damaged communication infrastructures. Fortunately, all the members and related personals of the Indonesian Shorinji Kempo Federation have been reported to be safe. The Indonesian Federation has started sending Shorinji Kempo members to provide humanitarian supports in the damaged areas.
WSKO has decided to send a special funding to support the humanitarian supports provided by the Indonesian Federation. We also ask each federation and branch to support the Indonesian Federation in helping people in distress.
