Summary

This project by JEN aims to organize volunteers for providing soup kitchens to displaced people and moving sludge inside of houses devastated by tsunami in Ishinomaki City, Sendai Prefecture, Tohoku Region. This will support displaced people in food shortage in camps and promote their return from camps to their own houses. We will also assess needs to improve quality of life of people affected by earthquakes and tsunami in terms of long-term view points.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Tohoku - Pacific Ocean Earthquake and tsunami devastated vast coastal areas of Tohoku. In Ishinomaki City in Tohoku Region, 10,000 people are dead or missing because of tsunami, 20,000 people are in camps, and 20,000 people stay in destroyed houses out of 120,000 population. Those even living on the 2nd floor of own house do not have food, water, clothes and fuel for stoves. The 1st floor is covered by sludge brought by Tsunami, and threatening the families with diseases.

How will this project solve this problem?

JEN will provide soup kitchen to displaced people in camps who do not have proper access to food to live. JEN will prepare tools and sand bags and organize volunteers to remove sludge from houses with accumulated sludge to enable families to return home. JEN will meet the urgent needs of displaced people in evacuation centres by providing most needed items.

Potential Long Term Impact

Displaced people will start to return from camps to their own houses. For that, houses must be in livable condition. Providing soup kitchen will support displaced people in food shortage to survive, and sludge removal will promote displaced people to return their own houses.
