Playgrounds for temporary housing complexes

Playgrounds for temporary housing complexes
Many times, temporary housing complexes are not equipped for children to play outdoor. In low radiation areas, AAR JAPAN is setting up playgrounds at temporary housing complexes so that children can play outdoor. (Picture: Temporary housing complex in Soma City, Fukushima - April 6th, 2012)

Toys for kids to have fun

Toys for kids to have fun
In areas where the radiation level is higher, children have to play indoor. AAR Japan is providing toys to support the growth of these children. (Kindergarten in Date City, Fukushima - May 11th, 2012)

Breaking isolation

Breaking isolation
Community events give the opportunity to overcome isolation and strengthen social networks. When we plan the events, we make sure everyone feels welcomed to participate: families with children just as much as residents who live alone or elderly residents who often feel left out. The events feature such components as concerts, activities related to seasonal festivities, massages and light exercise sessions provided by physiotherapists, to name only a few.

Care for body and mind

Care for body and mind
Life in the narrow rooms of temporary housing units often impacts the physical wellbeing of the evacuees. Numbness in the limbs, pain in the joints, muscle knots, poor blood circulation and weak muscles are common. Physiotherapists and occupational therapists can provide massages and offer guidance on exercises and streching to help improve the physical condition of the temporary housing residents.

For a life without fear

For a life without fear
Ever since the magnitude 9 earthquake on March 11, 2011, aftershocks and smaller earthquakes are occurring frequently in the disaster regions, sometimes even triggering power outages. For persons with disabilities who depend on artificial ventilation equipment and other medical devices, these power outages can be a life-threatening danger. AAR JAPAN is providing portable power generators to individual households and welfare facilities, so that the affected persons and their families don't have to live in constant fear of power outages.
