Two years have passed since the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes. Yet 1500 families continue to live in the temporary housing complexes established after the earthquakes struck.
Peace Winds has been assisting these families with accommodations (first tents, then module prefabs, and now temporary housing). Peace Winds continues to support events and activities, leadership training, pet care, and other resources to build a strong sense of community among the residents. In May 2018, we met with leaders and residents at the Mashiki housing complexes. The 24 township leaders are diligently working to maintain community bonds and improve life for their fellow residents. One could easily see and hear the positive and inspiring results due to your generous donations.
With your support, we have had two years of successful projects and have built strong connections within the housing communities. Your generosity has provided an opportunity for Peace Winds to begin transitioning to new projects to aid families (particularly children, elderly, and pet owners).
We will continue supporting the 1,500 families living in the Mashiki complexes and provide updates. Together we can ensure Kumamoto families continue making strides in their recovery.
