Purpose of the Project
In cooperation with call centers, we visit evacuees with supporters in various areas in order to prevent evacuees’ isolation.
Project Location and Project Contents
The location will be all areas where evacuees live. The locations are in places where the call center at Matsudo city in Chiba prefecture has supported and in areas where evacuees live e.g. Fukushima, Minami-Sanriku, Ishinomaki, Sendai, and Natori city in Miyagi . These are areas where Touhoku HELP has supported in projects. We will visit evacuees who live in various areas, encourage them, and connect them with supporters in other locations.
Details of the Project
Activities: Ms. Momoko Fukuoka is originally from Fukushima and now lives in Chiba prefecture. Since after the earthquake, she has communicated with leaders among the evacuees who live in the temporary housing units and families who live in rental housing provided by government to inquire their needs. She has also coordinated supporters from all over Japan and became a hub for relief activities. Currently, her house has become an evacuee support call center for all of the Fukushima area. She has been basically doing this work all on her own, and now that it has been 2 years since the earthquake, she has had difficluties continuing her work due to her physical strength. We connect to her work by receiving information from the evacuees’ leaders information to send to clinical pasotral ministers (chaplains) for attentive Active Listening and thus make it an evacuee leader support.
In parallel with above, we continue to visit evacuees in Minami-Sanriku, Ishinomaki, Sendai, and Natori city. This project was established as “Grand House Project” (for details, see attached “Grand House Project”) which we continued until June 2013 as a relief project for Tohoku earthquake. By doing so, we access to both evacuees and evacuees’ local leaders and support their heart by attentive Active Listening and by providing relief items.
The purpose of this project is to prevent evacuees’ isolation and sustain evacuees’ hope in this situation which is hard to foresee by the clinical pastoral ministers (chaplains) who are visiting and attentively Active Listening to them.
We connect to her work by receiving evacuee leaders’ information to send clinical pastoral ministers (chaplains) for attentive Active Listening and thus make it an evacuee leader support.
