“It has come to often take up the volunteer work with TV.

“Fumbaro” East Japan Support Project has very unique scheme. One volunteer in the stricken city gather support goods request, who want what and their address, and send e-mail to the project office. Project office ask anyone to support the request via blog, twitter, or amazon. And someone send the requested things direct to the person that they request. The project started at Sanriku-Takada town, and the object cities has extended gradually. Since one month or more passes from the earthquake, what for the victim hopes now shifts to the one used in usual life, like outer wear, child-seat, or toys.

Japan Civil Network for Disaster Relief in East Japan is a portal site which can search where, which work that volunteer is needed.

Nittsu Research Institute and Consulting, which is a subsidiary of Nippon Express, issued the logistics report “The Way of ‘Disaster Logistics’ for Large and Wide Area Earthquake”. It issued part 1 this time, and it will continue to the next report.”
