Peace Winds America

Our core belief is that disaster response begins with preparedness, and that both disaster preparedness and response should integrate the efforts of governments, militaries, NGOs and the private sector. By strengthening disaster preparedness and response in the Asia Pacific, PWA seeks to reduce the high human, political and economic costs of natural disasters in the Pacific Rim.
Japan Earthquake Disaster Recovery
 
Peace Winds America is committed to providing disaster relief and recovery to the people of Japan. Following the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes, PWA provided shelter, counseling, and medical care. Evacuees were moved from the Peace Winds emergency shelters to temporary housing. PWA plans to have all evacuees in temporary housing by the end of the year while distributing household items. PWA also started creating community building events, a dog park, children's playground, and community gardens. project reportread updates from the field
Post-Earthquake Disaster Recovery in Nepal
 
PWA continues to assist those displaced by the 2015 earthquakes. PWA recovery efforts target livelihoods, particularly female-headed households. PWA and partners are constructing three community centers where women and girls receive tools, training, and support to enter the labor force in a safe environment. To complement our community center program PWA is also expanding to support water and sanitation projects to build water and toilet facilities for homes and schools currently lacking them. project reportread updates from the field
