From March 11, 2011, the day of the Great East Japan Earthquake, until now, Japan Platform (JPF) has received numerous generous donations and contributions from about 3,300 companies/organizations and about 43,000 citizens all over the world. Those contributions have been utilized to provide more than 310 aid activities implemented by around 80 NGOs/NPOs. In addition to donations, many companies and organizations have also provided prompt support in the form of various kinds of emergency relief assistance.
Once again, we at JPF would like to express our genuine heartfelt gratitude for all the donators’ kind generosity. According to the Reconstruction Agency, as of February 2014, approximately 270,000 people are still displaced from their homes. JPF is dedicated to supporting the long-term efforts of local people toward their recovery, extending to our strategic support plan and including the "Tomoni ikiru (Live together) fund" for local NGO/NPOs, with results achieved by the end of the 2015 fiscal year. In the Fukushima area, we will need to provide even more extensive support to deal with all the challenges there. To achieve effective support in the Tohoku region, we would like to focus more on collaborating with companies and local municipal governments.
We kindly ask for your continuous support through this long journey towards recovery.
Secretary General, Japan Platform
