Food Drive to Build Better Community in Atami

By Don Thomson | National Director

It has been almost two years since the landslide in Atami, Shizuoka Prefecture triggered by torrential rains. Operation Blessing Japan is working with the local community to provide support. Ahead of the next rainy season, we connected with people through food drives.

So far, project leader Yoshiki Nanjo and his staff have been providing psychosocial activities for children and the elderly at a community center. In addition, this year, in order to strengthen community ties, we are promoting efforts to connect churches in Shizuoka Prefecture through food drives.

Church members donate food and daily necessities that are collected at the church and donated to Operation Blessing. The supplies are delivered by our staff and volunteers to elderly people in the community, while also asking after their welfare, about changes in their physical condition. Through these efforts, we hope to build a foundation in the community that will make it easier to reach out to those in need in the event of another emergency situation.

One woman told us, "I get scared when the rainy season approaches.”

We continue to work to alleviate such anxieties, and help to heal wounded hearts.

We sincerely appreciate your support for our continued efforts to help the survivors in this community.
