JISP’s Emergency Response Team has been continuing our work in some of the most severely affected areas of Tohoku, mainly in Ohsato town (Miyagi Prefecture), Date city and Kawamata town in Fukushima Prefecture. As the municipal governments, Social Welfare Council and Support Organizations respond to survivor’s urgent needs in coordination, many of the affected communities struggle to urgently establish policies to help recovery of survivor’s lives in a longer term. Our Emergency Team have been repeatedly coordinating with the municipal government offices, Social Welfare Council and other stakeholders in the above areas to provide the most efficient and timely support, whilst valuing coordination. 

JISP has been providing psychological first aid, consultations, as well as physical relief to vulnerable survivors, by dispatching resources trained in physical therapy and psychosocial care to evacuation shelters. We then return their feedbacks to the municipal governments and Social Welfare Council, in order to ensure that the survivor’s needs are addressed. Parallelly, our staff assess the material needs of evacuation shelter and community distribution points, and provide relief materials such as food, hygiene goods, cleaning items based on their requests in a timely manner.

With your generous support, since March 2015, the Healing Japan program has reached 837 beneficiaries in various locations across the Tohoku region. 
By providing skills and knowledge in psychological coping and resilience, the Healing Japan program has reached to survivors, aid-workers and local professionals affected by the triple disasters of March 2011. 
We would like to thank from the bottom of our hearts to the beneficiaries, volunteers, specialists, and finally, to you - the donors - for making this program a meaningful one. 

Due to financial and Human-Resource reasons, JISP decided to bring the program to a halt. By leveraging our experience in Tohoku, and while maintaing our base of operations in Sendai, Tohoku, JISP continues to work with communities affected by disasters in Kumamoto (Japan), Nepal, and Kenya. 

Thank you for all your support throughout the years,

The Rebuilding Communities of Sanriku Coastal Areas Project facilitated healthy interaction among residents and care providers of public housings and temporary housings, build after the triple disaster in March 2011.  
We believe that by encouraging the residents of the Sanriku coastal areas to communicate and express their thoughts and feelings, a more supportive and resilient community has emerged. 
With your kind support, in the past two years the project reached to 93 beneficiaries in various locations across the Sanriku Coastal Area. 
It was heart-warming to see the participants' positive attitude toward their new neighbors and toward their new community.

Due to various financial and Human-Resource reasons, JISP decided to bring the program to an end.

Thank you for all your support,
