Emergency Relief for Earthquake in Tohoku

17/02/2021

We would like to express our deepest sympathy to all those who have been affected by the earthquake that struck the Tohoku region on February 13 (Fukushima Earthquake).

Immediately after the earthquake struck, AAR Japan began confirming the safety of people concerned and organizations in the affected areas and has been gathering information. As a result, it became clear that there are needs for assistance in repairing welfare facilities for persons with disabilities in Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures, where AAR had been providing support since the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011, and in distributing water and other supplies to welfare facilities for people with disabilities in areas where the water supply had been cut off. Thus, AAR will begin to support the victims of the earthquake.

Starting February 16, AAR will begin preparing relief supplies and from February 18, we start distributing large water tanks, drinking water, food, and other emergency relief supplies mainly to facilities for persons with disabilities. (Staff members who will be coming to the area from Tokyo will begin relief activities upon receiving negative results from the COVID-19 test.

We would like to ask for your cooperation.

Thank you.
