Challenge

The area is with old houses with more elderly people. Many houses were destroyed, and people were still waiting for rescue after a week from the disaster. The problem is the road situation is very bad and it made rescue team going into the area difficult. At the same time, the area has been continuously having the smaller earthquake. Noto peninsula, Ishikawa prefecture is a cold temperatures area. Many evacuees have been in extremely bad environment such as sleeping in cars more than a week.

Solution

Japan Platform has a consortium of more than 40 experienced NGOs and have gone through some earthquake disasters in the past in Japan including Tohoku earthquake (2011) and Kumamoto earthquake (2016). NGOs have strength in different areas such as rescue, medical, evacuation center management, mental care, house cleaning,.etc. and Japan Platform will have coordination role to be best possible for the affected communities.

Long-Term Impact

For example, Japan Platform have experience in Tohoku or Kumamoto with post disaster support as well. If we have a budget, we will try to support local community to stand by themselves again. For example, we supported Kumamoto to create a local non-profit team to deal with future disaster or problems and it worked during flood in the area under covid 19 pandemic.
