Niigata Chuetsu-oki earthquake: JEN has began local inspections.

JEN has dispatched an inspection team to assess the situation in the region where the Chuetsu- oki earthquake struck on Monday the 16th of July.

<The dispatched officers>
* JEN’s Secretary General: Keiko Kiyama(Ms.)
* JEN's Program Officer: Ai Tanaka (Ms.)
* Inspector cum Chairman of Toka Machi Regional Development Committee: Yamamoto Hiroshi (Mr., - Native of Niigata)

We will carry out the inspections in Kashiwazaki and other areas where emergency assistance is difficult to reach. Then, based on our analysis of the situation, we will use the experience built up over the years in Niigata to provide flexible and appropriate assistance to meet the people’s needs.

JEN is also collecting donations to assist with these emergency efforts in Niigata.

We appreciate your cooperation.
