Challenge

Many people are missing in the area suffering from the disaster, people continue to evacuate their lives due to the collapse of the houses and the utilities have been cut off. Agriculture, which is a major industry, is also hit hard. For the local community, losing the land that has been engaged in agriculture for hundreds of years, rather than losing the house to live, will lead to losing hope, both in traditional and economic terms.

Solution

[1.Disaster Recovery Support]We will conduct restoration work for damages such as cleaning of houses suffered from flood damage and landslides. [2.Industrial Recovery Support]Only when local industries are restored, management and employment are stabilized, and the vibrancy of the town is restored. For this time, we will aim for prompt and effective support so that the affected farmers can resume agriculture. [3.Community Support]We will support such as mind and body care, event planning,etc.

Long-Term Impact

United Earth was on the ground immediately following the Great East Japan earthquake of 2011. From the initial stages (including relief supply collection and debris removal) to medium-to-long term activities supporting the reconstruction effort (including industrial aid and job creation projects, support services for children, and child welfare facility construction), we have been working continuously for an ongoing period of 7 years.We are endeavoring to put our Tohoku aid experience to use.
