WA artist Peter Davidson has donated one of his drawings, After 3/11- Ogatsu Ishinomaki Hospital, to our hospital so we may remember the lives lost in the 2011 tsunami in Japan.

The drawing depicts a hospital at which two doctors, all the nurses and staff knowingly stayed with their patients when the tsunami hit. Sixty people died that day.

Arts Program Manager Connie Petrillo said the drawing is a powerful reminder of the strength of the human spirit.

“We cannot imagine what these courageous people went through on that day,” said Connie.
