【News】 Merger of A-PAD Japan and Civic Force

A-PAD Japan is pleased to announce that we have merged with our partner organization, Civic Force (CF). A leading disaster response organization, Civic Force has worked with over 1,000 businesses in disaster assistance. A-PAD Japan will take on the Civic Force brand name and continue its operations based in Saga Prefecture with the current staff. This merger will allow us to strengthen our management, financial standing, and emergency preparedness mechanism. 

A-PAD Japan will begin operating as Civic Force on May 1, 2021. Donations through Furusato Nozei (“Hometown Tax” scheme) were closed on April 20, 2021.

Civic Force opened a donation site on April 21 through the Saga Furusato Nozei. Please take a moment to visit our page to find out how you can support us.
