Peace Boat continues its relief work for the survivors of the great earthquake and tsunami affected areas of Ishinomaki in Miyagi, primarily in the areas of social recovery at temporary housing, economic recovery in the area of the fishing industry, as well as community regeneration through their community center called Peace Boat Center Ishinomaki. Their support will be continued and assistance to those who seek assistance, always ensuring to meet the needs of local communities. All activities from last 1.5 years since the disaster can be found at: PEACE BOAT’S RELIEF
Peace Boat’s mission is to facilitate, at a grass-roots level, interactions between different communities all around the world by creating a neutral space beyond borders, bringing people of different nationalities, religions, and ethnicity together, to discuss, understand, and jointly take action on issues of peace, human rights, and sustainable development. This is very much reflected in our relief activity in Tohoku region also.
*The city of Ishinomaki was among the most seriously affected by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The tsunamis waves where up to 10 meters high and traveled inland up to 5 kilometres from the coast and destroyed around 80% of the 700 houses in the coastal whaling port of Ayukawa, and the Kadonowaki neighbourhood. Approximately 46% of the city was inundated by the tsunami. One of the saddest disasters in this region was the complete destructions of the Okawa Elementary School, 70 of 108 students and nine of 13 teachers and staff were killed through the unforgettable tsunami and earthquake.
