Ishinomaki, Japan (CNN) -- It was indeed a great disaster that hit Japan the very firghtful day. A day of great sorrows in the the lives of the people of Japan. The massive earthquake and the killer tsunami, swept the country without any warning. That day would forever hunt our Japanese bothers and sister, for in that frightful day many childrens in Japan were left as orphans.
Sayaka Sugawara feels nothing, she says, standing on the foundation of the only home she's ever known. Japan's devastating tsunami on March 11 swept away the entire structure, leaving behind only a horror the 15-year old still cannot comprehend.
Sayaka pauses, staring out over the landscape of nothingness. Two hundred homes once stood here -- not a single sign remains of that community.
Without her parents, Sayaka is now an orphan at age 15.
It was already three months after the great disaster that srtike Japan and still, the Japanese government is still counting the number of children like Sayaka who have lost either one or both parents.
The government estimates 1,200 children lost one parent and 200 lost both. These children will either end up living with distant relatives or place in a Japanese orphanage -- but many orphanages across the nation are at full occupancy.
It is true that in the time of great need heros would rise up in order to extend help to the needy. Ashinaga, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Japanese orphans, hopes to directly help the tsunami orphans through financial assistance and psychological support.
These childrens need all the support they need, in order to continue living life. Though they maybe orphans, they are also not alone for they still have angels to guide them.
