On October 12, 2019, a massive storm, Typhoon Hagibis, made landfall in Japan. With unprecedented amounts of rainfall and violent winds, the typhoon caused destruction across a widespread area including flooding and landslides. As of Oct. 15, at least 58 people have died, 15 are missing, and over 210 are injured. Additionally, more than 230,000 people evacuated their homes and over 100,000 households are without power. The victims will require many essentials during this recovery period.
PWJ is conducting search-and-rescue operations with our rescue dogs and medical personnel. As our needs assessment continues, PWJ will provide essential items such as food, water, and other emergency relief items to the victims of the typhoon.
This project will assist those who have lost their homes and those immediately attempting to recover their homes by caring for their immediate emergency needs. As our needs assessment continues to update, PWJ will provide for the developing needs of the victims.
