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,

Thank you for your support1!

The Youth Leadership Project brings together youths from disaster areas around the world for an intensive training that takes place in Tohoku, Japan. The youths learn and experience disaster prevention methods, Psychological First Aid and stress-management techniques; Tour the disaster area and meet with local leaders who have made a change, and work towards realizing their goals in planning and implementing disaster-recovery initiatives .

Unfortuntately, due to various financial and Human-Resource reasons, we have decided to postpone the 2017 Youth Leadship Project.

Thank you for your support and we hope to offer the program next year.

Why Healing Japan?

Although 6 years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake, studies and surveys show that many still suffer from invisible

problems such as emotional scars and trauma, and that the victims require long-term care.By using culturally relevant, non-

traditional methods such as expressive therapies and group facilitation, Healing Japan aims to develop local capacity for assisting a

traumatized population in times of crises, as well as to provide necessary long-term psychosocial support to the victims.We believe

that high-quality, low-cost and sustainable capacity for psycho-social support is crucial for the long-term recovery of people affected

by disasters and other adversities.Our aim is thus to help create such a capacity.Entering the 7th year after the disasters, Japan

IsraAID Support Program remains committed to the people of Tohoku, and continues to work to meet the current challenge of

people's mental well-being. 

Thank you for your long-term support to the Healing Japan program!
