Help victims of Japan Floods and Typhoon Jebi

Summary

In early July, heavy rains caused massive flooding in western and central Japan. Peace Winds responded immediately with search and rescue and provided relief supplies. Only nine weeks later the most powerful typhoon to hit Japan in 25 years made landfall, striking many of the same areas devastated by floods. Thousands from both disasters are living in evacuation centers. Your donation provides supplies and supports programs for the vulnerable people (especially elderly and children) in shelters.

Challenge

Immediately after the July floods an unprecedented, deadly heat wave hit Japan, delaying recovery and clean-up efforts. In early September, Typhoon Jebi added additional delays to recovery for the flood victims and created new victims needing assistance. Peace Winds and shelter staff must prepare shelters/evacuation centers as more people need accommodations resulting from these disasters. Peace Winds needs to provide operational planning, additional staff, supplies, and assist recovery.

Solution

Peace Winds is supporting evacuation centers by providing basic supplies and longer-term accommodations. Peace Winds is expanding assistance to earlier and new evacuation centers for the typhoon victims. Additional supplies and infrastructure are needed to ensure centers can operate. Peace Winds delivers relief goods, maintains shelter operations, and supports vulnerable evacuees such as the elderly. Peace Winds is assisting evacuees with home repair and cleaning so families can return home.

Long-Term Impact

Peace Winds is assisting the disaster victims and will continue support through the victims' recovery. We are providing food/water, shelter, security, clean up assistance, and counseling as flood survivors continue to live in the centers and typhoon victims join them and/or reside in other centers. Peace Winds is creating a strong sense of community, sharing a hopeful future. Peace Winds aids all victims, especially focusing on children and the elderly in the relief and recovery process.
