New Year's greeting
We respectfully offer our New Year's greetings. Three years ago in January of 2009, Civic Force was established with the following mission: "In order to meet all of the needs of the victims of the next large scale disaster to occur in Japan, We will work with business, governments, and local people to provide high quality support with unseen speed." The previous year of 2011 has been particulary challenging and has truly seen us put our mission into practice.
We entered the disaster area by helicopter the day after the Tohoku Earthquake and began transporting relief supplies such as food and daily necessities starting the week after, delivering 540 different items for a total of 380 tons to evacuation shelters and other locations.
With the strength of businesses, governments, NPOs, and citizens, we have continued to operate projects such as handmade baths and a large car ferry.
Although there is still a mountain of serious issues at the areas struck by the disaster, we offer our heartfelt thanks with everyone that we've been able to greet the New Year and each and every one of our staff will continue to focus their energies and conduct activities in tohoku. Civic Force is also preparing for the next large scale disaster. We ask for everyone`s continued support, guidance, and encouragement in the New Year.
