ARROWS staff providing medical assistance
In January 2022, ARROWS, a joint emergency rescue team with Civic Force's partners, distributed infection prevention items to welfare facilities and began providing medical assistance to hospitals including administering booster shots.
Hiroshima Prefecture reported a high level of infections and in response, ARROWS dispatched doctors to assist with booster shot administration and provide online medical consultations to patients at home. The online consultation was available free of charge for Hiroshima residents.
In Okinawa Prefecture, ARROWS dispatched two nurses and one coordinator to a temporary medical waiting station where patients wait to be admitted to hospitals. The team coordinated with the authorities and provided medical assistance.
Through an NPO Partner Project, in February, Civic Force supported TEDIC in their activities including providing safe spaces for children and consultation services. TEDIC aims to provide a safe environment for children and their families and to solving unique challenges. Currently, the pandemic is isolating children who might be going through other issues at home. TEDIC operates a tutoring service, home visits, free school, and individual household support. These activities are built upon a strong relationship TEDIC made with children and families.
As infection numbers trend downward, Civic Force remains committed to provide emergency assistance to those affected by COVID-19.
