Summary

Peace Winds continues to assist victims of disasters. In 2018, earthquakes, typhoons, floods, landslides even heatwaves struck Japan. This year 2019 has seen few disasters enabling Peace Winds to continue to help 2018 victims and communities recover, moving into their homes/schools/day-care centers, and providing medical care and counseling. We are partnering with local officials, non-profit organizations and volunteers, reaching those still in needs.

Challenge

With the increase and severity of natural disasters such as flooding, typhoons, earthquakes, and landslides, we need to be prepared. Focusing on disaster mitigation and preparedness is critical. In addition, we need to increase the speed and appropriateness of relief. Collaborating with individuals, communities, other NGOs, and governments is pivotal to relief and recovery. We target relief assistance, avoid overlap, and reach those most in need, building on experiences and lessons learned.

Solution

Being prepared is crucial for communities, individuals, and Peace Winds America as we respond to disaster. Our response and recovery experience, and our networks with communities, local NGOs and governments enable us to address urgent needs. Funding from individuals, foundations, and businesses empowers us to provide quick and appropriate relief. We aid individuals and communities recovering from loss, as the transition to recovery is as important as relief. With your help, we can do both.

Long-Term Impact

Our relief and recovery efforts build upon the resilience of the Japanese people and communities. Aiding individuals and communities in recovery through temporary housing, medicines and sanitation, livelihoods, and programs for children and the elderly are all long-term impacts. Improving morale, inspiring hope as result of met urgencies have long-term impact. We humbly hope we enhance this resilience through our NGO response.
