Monthly Report vol.11

11 months since the earthquake, industrial recovery is the key

11months have passed since the Tohoku Earthquake occurred on March 11, 2011. In coastal regions devastated by the resulting tsunami, the first stage of rubble removal and building cleanup has been completed. At first glance, it looks as if calm has returned to these areas. The problems that each person here is bearing such as shock and worry about the future will requre many long months and years to recover from.

 Many people are living each day burdened by their individual worries. These included people remembering family, friends, and loved ones lost right before their eyes in the tsunami, people worried about their employment for whom the prospects of their industry recovering look poor, people as yet unable to return to their homes out of fear, and people living in fear of radiation.

 On the other hand, there are people striving to overcome these anxieties and somehow recover. In addition to conducting activities to prevent isolation and to provide mental care for disaster victims, Civic Force continues to provide support in various areas to support the revival of towns even more vital than they were before the earthquake by supporting urban development and industrial restoration, sources of vitality for people.

 In our 11th monthly report, we report on the start of the second session of the employee volunteer dispatch program and the resolution and start of the second project for the General Incorporated Foundation Tohoku Kyoeki Toshi Kikin. In addition, we will also explain the meaning of monitoring NPO partner projects.
