Japan disaster child volunteers

A group of boys turns misfortune into good deeds by spearheading relief efforts for quake and tsunami victims.

    A group of boys has taken it upon themselves to scavenge for food and supplies among the debris in Taro, where their village once stood.

    They have been able to provide some relief to hundreds of survivors sheltered at a nearby Buddhist temple.

    Al Jazeera's Steve Chao reports on their inspiring deeds from Morioka in northern Japan.
