Summary

This project provides humanitarian assistance to victims of recent floods in Japan. As of Aug. 14, 2021, 1.5 million people in Saga, Nagasaki, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima alone have been placed under the highest emergency alert after rivers broke their banks, inundating homes. The danger is spreading, resulting in landslides, evacuations and deaths. In response, we are conducting rescue operations and providing medical support in affected areas, lead by ARROWS, our airborne search & rescue squad

Challenge

A wide swathe of Japan has been hit by torrential rains, which have forced rivers to burst their banks and triggered landslides. More than half a million residents have been placed under the highest emergency alert. Some have been forced to seek shelter after evacuating their homes, which have been inundated by the floods. Around a dozen deaths have already been reported.

Solution

ARROWS, an airborne search & rescue squad operated by Peace Winds Japan, will conduct rescue operations, providing medical support in all affected areas and delivering emergency supplies. PWJ is also dispatching emergency relief teams providing medical support through doctors and nurses and logistic and other assistance at evacuation centers. The teams will also assist with the procurement and distribution of emergency supplies, including water, food, and sanitation products.

Long-Term Impact

The rains are projected to continue for some time and flooding to spread, extending the need for relief efforts throughout Japan. Affected residents will continue to require support for considerably longer as repairs to homes and infrastructure will take time to complete, especially due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, which has escalated to new heights in Japan in recent weeks. This has caused many areas to be placed under lockdown, making the need for longterm support even more crucial
