Emergency Response to Western Japan Floods Response Plan 2018

Background

2Since July 5, 2018, heavy rainfall continued extensively in Western Japan, which caused severe damages to 13 prefectures including Hiroshima, Okayama and Ehime. JPF decided to launch a support program on July 8, and as on July 16, 5 organizations were present for investigation & aid in the affected areas of Hiroshima, Okayama, Ehime, Fukuoka and Saga prefecture. Whilst, there were 23 organizations interested to participate in the program or were already investigating and supporting activities on their own.
In the current moment, Hiroshima, Ehime and Okayama prefecture are revealed as the most devastating affected areas. However, the demands vary in each area, as the entire support arrangement has just begun. While in some areas sufficient amount of goods are supplied and in other areas there is a further demand of goods which is yet to be delivered. Especially, lack of official assistance in special need people area is predominant, as assistance from the NGO sector is highly expected.
In the coming days, assistance will be needed for evacuees, moving from the shelters to temporary housing facilities & the biggest challenge will be the accessibility issue for the affected people who stay at the deemed temporary houses. With these situation, we are considering the program scale to be widened.

Location

The affected 13 prefectures

Response Term

Initial response:July 9 to Oct 8, 2018 (3 month)

Emergency response:Oct 9, 2018 to Apr 8, 2019 (6 month)

The project term may be readjusted by Aug 2018 based on the local situation.

Budget

600 million Yen (Private fund)
 ※The increase in amount will be considered on the basis of total donations

Content

Support Areas:Operational assistance for shelters and management of volunteer centers, NFI, assistance for evacuees at home and temporary houses, water and sanitation, medical assistance, assistance for children, mothers & people in special needs, psychological care, support for local communities, cordination, supporting NGO network organization in the affected areas.

  • The affected areas, the subsidizing scheme for non member organization could be considerable in the initial response term. Our aim will be the subservience of the local activities by supporting the affected area's autonomous reconstruction and rehabilitation, thus developing an exit strategy of JPF's support. The presence of the local NPOs, the situation of the NPO network and their activities, the government's response should be counted. While the initial response term, JPF office will start the system planning simultaneously with local investigation and organizing corporations.

Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation has provided high-pressure water sprayers. The high pressure water sprayers delivered to NPO U.grandma (Uwajima grandma), that is providing assistance in Uwajima city, Ehime Prefecture & supporting JPF's local investigation.

U. grandma was lending high pressure water sprayers for citizens and NPOs to clean the inundated houses and buildings. However, for the preparation of the reconstruction of water system in August, the usage demands were expected to increase, as were seeking to implement more. Therefore, JPF consulted Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma & they decided immediately and arranged the direct delivery with sufficient quantity of the cleaning appliance on the very same day of consultation. Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma showed us the intention to support the affected areas by providing supplies in demand after few days the disaster occurred. Thanks to them; we were able to respond quickly to the needs of the affected area. Also, we have received voices from the locals appreciating the support & the effectiveness by cleaning up mud caked places.

Bosch Corporation

Bosch Corporation has provided us high pressure water sprayers. They offered us their products with a thought to provide assistance, and according to the research by local investigation team of JPF and the member NGO, we figured out that the water appliance was in high demand. Therefore the appliance was determined to be donated.
The member NGO ADRA Japan (ADRA), Peace winds Japan (PWJ), Wakachiai project (WP), and NPO U.grandma which were assigned by the local investigation team of JPF, received the high pressure water sprayers for cleaning the inundated buildings and agricultural related machines. U.Grandma commented that "Since it is a very backbreaking work to clean everything only with towels, these appliances are very useful to clean stuff effectively". Simultaneously, Bosch offered not only supplies but volunteering also, and as JPF was lacking manpower for deskwork, the Bosch staffs willingly consented to volunteer for a week. It was highly grateful that they offered assistance using their own resources.
