Japan: Canadian rugby players help Typhoon Hagibis recovery efforts in Kamaishi

Japón, Kamaishi
13 octubre 2019 a las 12:48 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

Canada's rugby players helped locals in the Japanese city of Kamaishi tidy up after Typhoon Hagibis on Sunday after their final Rugby World Cup match against Namibia was called off due to safety concerns.

Footage shows players sweeping and shovelling mud from roads, as well as helping out in transporting furniture in and out of buildings.

"When we got here we saw people's houses absolutely destroyed, the water up the walls and we are just trying to do our small, very small part to try and help them in any way we can," one player said.

"I am sure every team would be here if they were here in our position helping," another player said. "It's part of the rugby spirit, just get on and help out and get on with things."

Over a dozen people are also reportedly missing in the aftermath of Typhoon Hagibis with some 14,000 homes left without running water and 376,000 without power, as rescue and reconstruction efforts get underway in the wider Kanto region.
