We published Monthly Report Vol.8,
Eight months have passed since the earthquake
Eight months have passed since the Tohoku Earthquake. Along with the start of the harsh Tohoku winter, numerous new issues are arising such as discussions of moving to higher ground and the psychological care of disaster victims. Meanwhile, people are also making steps towards recovery from the disaster, stating "We cannot be depressed forever" and "Let's face the future."
Tohoku's recovery will still require many long months and years. While supporting disaster victims as they restore the area, Civic Force is also utilizing its experience in Tohoku to proceed with preparations for the next unpredictable disaster.
While new issues related to reconstruction are arising, the 8th Monthly Report will introduce cooperative partner projects which have entered a new phase. The cooperative partner projects have been implemented since April. Through cooperation with partner organizations that are able to respond to various needs in areas hit by the disaster using their specializations, the projects provide social services.
The eight projects of Phase1 were implemented just after the disaster. The seven projects of Phase2 utilized specialization and novelty to support reconstruction efforts while also aiming for the participation of the community of disaster victims themselves. Currently, the five projects of Phase3 are aimed solely at supporting local organizations. Below, we report on the Phase3 operations, which include a portion of phase2 projects which have been started anew.
