Challenge

People will need to build their lives gradually after losing their homes to earthquakes and tsunami. It will take time and 2HJ is willing to support the victims by delivering food. However, there is no infrastructure for food banks to work effectively in the Noto areas, such as storage for donated food items, parking for the trucks etc. for the relief efforts.

Solution

By obtaining the basic fund, we can start renting the storage warehouse, sending our truck regularly with food. Thus support the victim not just the emergency period but until they put their lives back together.

Long-Term Impact

We want to support the victims by providing food assistance until they are back on their feet, which may take at least a year or two, or more. The community of Noto peninsula is rich in history and artistry with cultural values. By restoring people's lives directly involving restoring the culture there.
