Young Volunteers Help Rebuild Ishinomaki (Miyagi Pref.) [22 Mar 2011 (Tue)] [2011年03月25日(Fri)]

Children also help to remove mud

Ishinomaki city, Miyagi prefecture, suffered a major earthquake and tsunami, leaving
over 10,000 people still missing. The 2nd biggest city in Miyagi prefecture is on the
verge of collapse. Although an 80-year-old woman and her 16-year-old grandson
were recently rescued after being trapped for 9 days, the city remains in a dire
situation. The volunteer groups have lent their hands to rebuild this shattered city.

A car drifted into swimming pool after the tsunami

The Nippon Foundation established the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Center
soon after the disaster and began a number of support activities.
The Nippon Foundation staff from the relief center are now in Ishinomaki city,
joined with other NGOs to provide emergency relief. Kazuto Sawatari,
The Nippon Foundation staff member says, “Although the city is still without gas,
electricity and running water, tens of volunteers are staying overnight to lend
a helping hand. The volunteers are working in various locations of the city
from a central base in Ishinomaki’s Sakai-shinmachi.”

Cars piled up from the tsunami

At Minato elementary school, 50 volunteers are using shovels to remove mud
from the building. Both children and adults are working together. There are not
only debris, but there are also cars strewn everywhere. “The situation is much
worse then we expected,” says Sawatari. The Nippon Foundation has set up
a desalination processing equipment (a large water purifier) in the city which was
provided by Tokura Industries, Ltd., in order to secure water for domestic usage.

The Nippon Foundation’s relief center is continuing its work in collaboration with
organizations established after the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, and is
now looking into dispatching a team to provide footbaths. The damage caused
by the earthquake has been colossal, and as relief efforts are expected to last
for a long period of time, a collaborative project to assist victims has been started
by a number of NPOs throughout Japan, who will be working together
with the Sendai Miyagi NPO center. The Nippon Foundation's public community
website, "CANPAN", has joined the collaborative project, and is now working
alongside NPOs nationwide to provide broad range of support to those affected
by the disaster.
The Nippon Foundation Northeastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund [2011年03月23日(Wed)]

Asking for your support for the establishment of "The Nippon Foundation Northeastern Japan
Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund"

The damage wrought by the massive earthquake that struck Northeastern Japan on
March 11 has been devastating. Estimates already place those dead and missing in the
thousands. At the moment, there is little that untrained volunteers can do to help on
the ground. What we all can do right now, however, is to help raise funds to support
both the relief organizations currently working in the affected areas, and the extensive
reconstruction work that will follow.

The Nippon Foundation has extensive experience working with local partners to provide
support after disasters such as the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995, and more recently
the Mid Niigata Earthquake and Noto Peninsula Earthquake. Our work has really brought
home the importance of non-governmental funding that allows civil society to respond
in a timely and flexible manner.

The Nippon Foundation's Northeastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund will
provide effective, accountable, and timely support to trusted partners working in the
affected areas. We will focus primarily on assisting children who have lost their parents
in the disaster, the elderly and disabled individuals, immigrants, and others whose
particular needs are often left unmet in difficult circumstances. We will also work to
secure medical supplies as well as a wide range of specialists including nurses,
psychotherapists and sign language interpreters, as paid volunteers to support the
people of the disaster stricken areas.

To ensure the highest degree of transparency, reports on the use of funds will be
posted on The Nippon Foundation website.

We believe the road to recovery for northeastern Japan will be a long and difficult one
but we are determined to commit ourselves until full recovery is reached.

Your contribution will make a world of a difference. Please give a hand to those in need.
