The Schmoe House in Hiroshima Japan

Floyd Schmoe came up with a plan to build houses for people in Hiroshima. This project was called "Houses for Hiroshima", and it resulted in houses and other forms of compensation for people suffering due to the bombing.

To implement this project, the Friends Pacific Yearly Meeting and the Japan Friends Years Meeting cooperated to raise funds. The money eventually came from Canada, France, China and other countries around the world. In August 1949, Schmoe and his colleagues arrived in Hiroshima and began building the first houses.
