Second Harvest Japan’s Disaster Relief Plan

Currently, Second Harvest Japan (2HJ) is using all of its personnel power to work on the disaster relief activity for the people in Tohoku area affected by the Pacific earthquake. Here are what we are working on now: 1) establishing the network to recruit all kinds of items we need; 2) establishing safe and secure routes to deliver needed items to the disaster victims; 3) collecting information about what exactly the disaster victims need. With your support, we will engage in the emergency disaster relief and the reconstruction assistance that will follow the emergency action.
This is the list of needed items by local disaster victims:
Basic Plan
* 2HJ set up the Disaster Relief Office in Sendai city. The office is working to establish the logistics network of donated items for agencies and evacuation sites in Miyagi prefecture. The office also collects information about food and supplies the disaster victims need and we will keep updating the information on our website.
* 2HJ sends two large size 4-ton trucks (one non-reefer truck and one reefer truck) with emergency vehicle permits to Sendai every other day.
* Currently, many corporations and individuals donate food and supplies to 2HJ. We deliver the items up to Sendai. From Sendai, with support of local welfare agencies, our Disaster Relief Office is sending the donated items to the areas that do not receive major support yet.
