“Disaster victims support activity by IsraAID – Kokoro no care-” 36th Breakfast Meeting
date : 3/13/2012
On March 13th, 2012, the Health and Global Policy Institute hosted 36th Special Breakfast Meeting. At this breakfast meeting, we welcomed Mr. Yotam Polizer, Japan Project Coordinator, IsraAID: The Israel Forum for International Humanitarian Aid as a speaker to speak on mainly about disaster reconstruction support activity in which IsraAID has been involved since last year. Mr. Polizer has over 10 years experience in humanitarian aid and international development. After the Great East Japan Earthquake, he has led the organization’s efforts on the ground, from cleaning and relief operations, to the current post-trauma professional capacity-building program in 7 cities of Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. We had an active discussion about the current reconstruction after one year has passed since the disaster and the future support vision which should be changed along with needs.
What is IsraAID?
The Israel Forum for International Humanitarian Aid is an internationally oriented Israeli coordinating and representative body for a total of 12 Israeli and Jewish aid organizations.
For the past decade members of IsraAID have been carrying out humanitarian assistance in more than 40 developing countries. Due to the war in Israel the Forum has varied knowledge and knowhow with regard to the care of children with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and will now carry out operations in Sendai for a period of 2 years in order to assist with the emotional care of people affected by the tsunami resulting from the Great East Japan Earthquake Disaster.
