【News】Newsletter Vol.18 Now Available - What We Can Do for the Next Generation

NewsLetter Vol.18eng-01.jpg

Eight years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011. Since then, recovery and reconstruction efforts in many of the disaster affected communities have shown steady progress. 

In contrast, there are challenges and emerging issues that have become apparent as time passed. Recovery of affected towns remain as a big challenge in some areas of Fukushima Prefecture. Those areas are facing depopulation and an aging population that were exacerbated because of the disaster. Additionally, there is a rise in isolation and solitary deaths and evacuees reluctant to return. In addition, the need to assist a significant number of evacuees who are not included in official statistics, and support for children remains. 

Civic Force is combining the existing projects, “Dream Support Project” and “NPO Partner Project,” and starting a new initiative which addresses the current challenges and needs of the affected areas.

The new project is discussed in our quarterly newsletter published this month. Updates on assistance activities for the West Japan floods and Hokkaido Earthquake are also available.

Please take a look at our latest newsletter and we look forward to your feedback.
