Challenge

463 facilities, including 388 in Uljin, 12 in Gangneung, and 63 in the East Sea, were lost. 261 and 62 houses were destroyed in Uljin and Donghae, respectively. 7,330 people in 4,635 households are being evacuated due to the forest fire. 6,497 people from 4,150 households in Uljin and Samcheok, and 688 people from 362 households in the East Sea are being evacuated. The affected area is so wide and the wind is severe in dry weather that it is still difficult to extinguish.

Solution

Wildfires are not easily caught. It still takes a lot of time to put out the fire. Firefighters are still doing their best on the spot, but the environment is too poor. Since dustproof masks are also insufficient, they are being put into extinguishing work while exposed to smoke due to wearing regular masks. APAD Korea will provide Dustproof masks, groceries, and stoves so that emergency relief work can be put into better conditions.

Long-Term Impact

After the forest fire is completely extinguished, emergency relief support for victims will be provided in earnest. About 4,000 houses were damaged by forest fires, and 8,000 people were displaced. APAD Korea will provide temporary residences for victims and food and hygiene kits for them. In order for us to support the victims, we desperately need a lot of support. Please, HELP US.
