A doctor conducts a thyroid examination on a five-year-old girl as her older brother and a nurse take care of her at a clinic in a temporary housing complex in Nihonmatsu, west of the tsunami-crippled Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant, Fukushima prefecture February 27, 2014. March 11 marks the third anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan's Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. In Koriyama, a short drive from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant, the city recommended shortly after the disaster that children up to two years old not spend more than 15 minutes outside each day. Those aged 3 to 5 should limit their outdoor time to 30 minutes or less. The limits were lifted last year, but many kindergartens and nursery schools continue to obey them even now in line with the wishes of worried parents. An annual survey by the Fukushima prefecture Board of Education found that children in Fukushima weighed more than the national average in virtually every age group. The cause seems to be a lack of exercise and outdoor activity. Picture taken February 27, 2014. REUTERS/Toru Hanai (JAPAN - Tags: DISASTER EDUCATION ENVIRONMENT HEALTH TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

The non-profit organization offers free thyroid examination for children from Fukushima area. As the World Health Organisation (WHO) says children in Fukushima may have a higher risk of developing thyroid cancer after the Daiichi nuclear disaster two years ago, mothers in Fukushima worry that local health authorities are not doing enough.

Potassium iodide pills are pictured at a health centre in Koriyama
Potassium iodide pills are pictured at a health centre in Koriyama, Fukushima prefecture March 12, 2012. Potassium iodide is believed to be effective in lowering the risk of thyroid cancer by saturating the thyroid gland, which helps prevent the uptake of radioactive material when given before or shortly after exposure. According to an employee from the health centre, Koriyama city has a reserve of 24,000 iodide pills, which are available for its residents under 40-years-old in case of another nuclear disaster. Even then, Japan's requirement for administering the pills is only when the radiation level exceeds 100 millisieverts (mSv) per hour.
