Aiding survivors “face-to-face”    

 

We at "project Next" are working to encourage and support survivors of the 3.11 disaster, especially those who have slipped through the bureaucratic cracks, by delivering food, supplies and other necessities directly to those in need.

The first step in support is to know the fact. We'll report support activities in photos daily. You can see them through the links below.

Rikuzentakata-city Iwate Pref.

Join "project Next" to aid survivors of the 3.11 disaster.


Many, many people's lives have been affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011.


You have seen videos of the devastation. You have heard of the 20,000 casualties caused by both the quake and resulting tsunami.


But what often goes unreported is the suffering of survivors, even those whose homes and families may still be intact.


Though over six months have past since the quake, water, gas, and electricity have still not been fully restored to some areas.

The distribution system for the whole area was destroyed, so getting enough food is still a problem.  In many neighborhoods, people were receiving only one orange and one box of biscuits per day.  While they may be able to survive on this, they certainly can not thrive.


Unemployment is now the major problem facing the survivors. In many cases, their workplaces were directly in the path of the tsunami.  In other cases, people's overreaction to the nuclear accident in Fukushima have lead to a sharp downturn in the sale of goods from the region (even though over 90% of the region is completely unaffected).


Many survivors now have little or no income. Even so, they still must make payments on existing loans as private mortgage companies do not allow extensions, even for tsunami victims. Nor do leasing companies. And re-financing a long term loan can lead to an increase in interest rates of up to 10%.


Many of these survivors have yet to receive any monetary aid from either the government or relief organizations.


Such is the incredible scale of the 3.11 disaster.


This sense of helplessness among survivors has turned into despair for some, leading to an increasing number of suicides, again not often reported in the media.


We at "project Next" are working to encourage and support survivors, especially those who have slipped through the bureaucratic cracks, by delivering food, supplies, and other necessities directly to those in need.  


And you can help directly. Please visit the Support page on this site to see how.
