Challenge

From late June to mid July, some of the heaviest rainfall seen in Japan for decades resulted in mass devastation for local communities in Japan. 225 people died, 13 are still missing, and more than 8 million were affected. On 9th July, Japan IsraAID Support Program (JISP), IsraAID's branch in Japan, deployed an emergency response team to Okayama Prefecture to provide emergency support in the shelters for displaced families, and assess the long-term psychosocial needs

Solution

IsraAID provides a combination of emergency and immediate relief needs, psychological first aid, and psycho-social activities such as training for local professionals, NGOs, and para-professionals

Long-Term Impact

Early focus on psychosocial needs is crucial to prevent long-term trauma in the community, and an emphasis on resilience and capacity building will have a lasting positive impact on local communities and their ability to respond to future crises.
