Justin Bieber has met with Japanese children affected by the devastating tsunami that hit the country in March.
The teen star is currently in Japan for concerts, and took the time to meet some of his fans who have lost their homes, livelihoods and loved ones in the disaster.
“Just met some incredible kids who have been thru alot because of the devastation here in Japan,” tweeted Bieber. “Blessed to meet them and proud to know them. When you meet kids like that… with all their strength and courage to move on you realize the important things in life.”
“We have friends who lost their family and their homes, some have left our school,” one of his fans told him during the meeting. "The town is covered with wreckage and it will take a long time to get back to normal.
“But we will work hard for this. Please give us courage through your music.”
Bieber offered hope to the children, saying “Things can get better and things will get better. There are only good times to come.”
