Challenge

Over 650 injured are in need of medical attention and nearly 2 million homes and around 40 hospitals have lost electricity. Over 2,600 victims are currently sheltered in evacuation centers and over 6,000 households do not have clean water.

Solution

Civic Force, in coordination with other first responders, dispatched a search-and-rescue team, including 3 SAR dogs, to search for missing persons. Civic Force is now planning to: 1) set up an office/resting area for medical staff at evacuation centers; 2) transport victims to public baths for their hygienic and laundry needs; 3) distribute expandable, plastic water tanks for clean water; and 4) provide privacy partitions at evacuation centers for mothers with infants during feeding.

Long-Term Impact

This fund will help bring the missing back to their loved ones, save patients by transporting them to other hospitals, and ease the suffering of victims by attending to their needs. The people of Japan have experienced a tumultuous summer of natural disasters and your donation will aid them.
