More than a year ago, the northern coast of Japan was decimated following a massive earthquake and tsunami. Countless people lost their lives, homes and business were destroyed, and radiation fears due to the damaged nuclear reactors in Fukushima have added to the emotional toll of the disaster, as communities continue the long process of recovery.
International Medical Corps was on-the-ground 48 hours after the earthquake, reaching 20,000 people at evacuation centers.
Since then, we’ve partnered with local organizations and the Japanese government to:
Provide critical supplies and medicines to evacuees in temporary housing;
Improve access to, and quality of mental health services by strengthening the capacity of local organizations and first-responders;
Offer employment opportunities for those who lost their livelihoods following the disaster.
