International Disaster Relief Organization Japan

IDRO Japan Mission Statement

IDRO-Japan aims to provide aid and assistance for immediate post-disaster relief and also assist in long-term support through relief trips and the construction of housing and community centers in the Tohoku region.

IDRO Japan
hopes to attain official NPO status in Japan to provide disaster relief for the Tohoku region that was heavily damaged by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. By focusing on the affected areas of the Tohoku region, IDRO Japan will work to establish a network of volunteers and businesses that can cooperate to provide both short-term and long-term disaster relief.

Short-term disaster relief for the Tohoku disaster area

IDRO Japan plans to travel from Kyoto to the Tokoku region, and from there enter the affected area in order to:

  1. Distribute food, clothing and toiletries.
  2. Gather information for future relief efforts
  3. Be self sufficient
  4. NOT get in the way or otherwise hamper the efforts of others
