Messages of encouragement to Brazil from local students (Tono, Iwate)
Coach Fabio, who had visited the city in 2019 for a pre-game training camp for the Paralympic Football 5-a-side game, sent supportive messages to the local students after multiple sport competitions and events have been canceled due to the current impact of the novel coronavirus spreading across the country.
In response, local students who have participated in the camp have created a video message to express their appreciation, titled “Força Brasil.”
The video can be seen here:

The city plans to consolidate more messages from citizens and create new video letters, which will be then posted on the national host town information website.
