Typhoon 10 devastated the first floor of hundreds of homes and washed away tens of homes in Iwaizumi town and some other nearby areas. People lost almost all their first floor possessions, among other things. Many also are not able to prepare their own meals as they are in shelters or in conditions without a kitchen and so on. Donations are needed to directly purchase physical goods and food for typhoon survivors, as well as to purchase other equipment and supplies, gasoline, and so on that are used in serving the community impacted by the typhoon.
The Kita Sanriku Christ Church Iwaizumi Christian Relief Activity and Volunteer Center is managed by missionary Dawn Birkner. Any surplus funds will be used in support of Dawn’s ongoing ministry work in Japan.
