Western Japan heavy rain Easy-to-understand fundraising information!

There is a lot of support for the victims of the heavy rains in western Japan.
I think relief supplies and volunteers are good, but I thought that “money” was needed in the long run.

Therefore, with the cooperation of Rie Mishima, who has worked for the Japan Fundraising Association for many years, I would like to introduce some of the many support recipients.

There are the following methods for raising funds.

1) Substantial and immediate fundraising

・ International cooperation NGO Peace Winds Japan
Emergency support in Mabi-cho, Kurashiki-shi, Okayama and Hongo-cho, Mihara-shi, Hiroshima. Helicopters enter Mabi-cho, which is said to be the most damaged, and all the people in the hospital are transported to Okayama University Hospital.

・ Momotaro Fund
The public foundation “Minna-zukuri Foundation” provides long-term support for the Okayama community, including the Okayama Community Foundation.

・ International NGO ADRA Japan
On July 8th, three staff members were dispatched to the site to start supplying supplies, investigating the disaster situation and needs, and providing support to the victims. The staff also transports relief supplies from the Emergency Disaster Response Alliance (SEMA), which consists of 17 private companies and 6 NPOs, to the site.

2) Easy fundraising with your points

・ T point donation
* As of 15:35 on July 8, 2018, the matching donation limit of 30 million yen has been reached, so the same amount donation effort from Yahoo! JAPAN has ended, but donations are still being accepted.

・ Rakuten Clutch Fundraising
The fundraising will be used to support people affected by the disaster through local governments. The total amount of donations to date is 43,502,261 yen.

3) Fundraising by crowdfunding

・ Good morning
Formed a joint emergency support team with the partner organization Asia Pacific Alliance Japan (A-PAD Japan) and Civic Force. Conducted a helicopter investigation to confirm the damage situation. The survey was conducted mainly in Hiroshima Prefecture and Kurashiki City, Okayama Prefecture, where the damage is said to be particularly severe.

・ Readyfor
AAR Japan (Association for Aid and Relief of Refugees) dispatches an emergency support team to the site in response to the heavy rains in western Japan. Curry has been prepared at the evacuation center since July 9th. After investigating the disaster situation and needs in Okayama and Ehime prefectures, we will distribute relief supplies.

In Okayama Prefecture, where the damage is said to be the worst, the warning of the collapse of the reservoir is still issued, and the situation is still uncertain for the restoration of infrastructure such as water outages.

We will continue to support organizations that support heavy rains in western Japan over the long term, including the community foundation in Okayama Prefecture, so we ask for your cooperation.

Thank you for your cooperation.
