Situation

  • When Laos experienced a heavy rainfall due to the tropical storm Son-Tinh, on July 23 (local time). A hydropower dam that was still under construction, collapsed in the Southern Laos. More than 13000 citizens mainly in Sanamxay district of Attapeu province were affected. As reported, 13 died, 120 are missing, and 6,000 were forced to evacuate.
  • After 2 weeks from the catastrophe, there are still regions without sufficient supports from the government or from the international organizations. Therefore, JPF concluded that a support from Japan is needed. Currently, 2 member NGOs are preparing to deliver goods such as mosquito bed nets, blankets, tents, clothes and sanitary goods for the affected people who lost their households.

JPF will provide prompt support at the time of emergency in association with its member NGOs. The further updates will be posted on our website and Facebook.
