Saga Prefecture Heavy Rain - Relief Items Distributed to the Ogi City Disaster Volunteer Center and the Evacuation Centers in Takeo City

On September 7, A-PAD Japan delivered 240 bottles of water (10 boxes) to the Ogi City Disaster Volunteer Center. These water bottles were procured through the Social Emergency Management Alliance (SEMA) and will be distributed to volunteers. The volunteers will be helping clean up the flooded houses. 

In Takeo City, there are currently two designated evacuation centers and three unofficial evacuation centers as of September 5.  Each evacuation center has 2 to 40 evacuees and was receiving fewer support due to its small-scale operation. On September 6, A-PAD Japan delivered 150 underwear items to the Kitakata Health Center and 90 underwear items to the elderly welfare center, Choju-en in Takeo-City. There are 40 evacuees and 20 evacuees at the two evacuation centers, respectively. The underwear items were procured through the Saga Disaster Assistance Platform and donated by a Japanese retail company, Shimamura, Co., Ltd. On the same day, 20 more underwear items were also delivered to the Omachi Community Center.

 

A-PAD Japan is continuing to work with the government, private sector, and NPOs to build an efficient and effective alliance for large-scale disaster response. 

A-PAD Japan is accepting donations to assist the people affected by the northen Kyushu heavy rain disaster. Thank you for your generous support.
