Thousands of people are now living in elementary schools and community centers serving as evacuation centers. These facilities, now at capacity, need further assistance to accommodate evacuees, including relief goods: food, water, medicine, clothing, bedding, and various hygiene products. Adequate water supply and hygiene regulation are important to reduce the spread of disease and sickness as people live in such close proximity.
Peace Winds is delivering relief supplies and working at the evacuation centers. Supplies and proper infrastructure are needed to ensure the evacuation centers can operate smoothly and safely as clean-up and recovery begin in the affected areas. Funds are needed to obtain and deliver relief goods, to maintain shelter operations, and provide support to the vulnerable evacuees.
Peace Winds is assisting the flood victims now, and will continue through the victims' recovery. We are providing food/water, shelter, security, counseling to the affected families, creating a strong sense of community and self-support, and targeting the children and elderly in the relief and recovery process. Peace Winds America partners with Japan, helping those who have lost so much.
