Much of western Japan, including Fukuoka, Nagasaki, Saga, Hiroshima, Okayama, Hyogo, Kyoto, and Gifu Prefectures, has been hit by historic rainfall.

Several areas have been impacted by flooding and landslides that have claimed lives, devastated entire communities, and forced millions of people to evacuate from their homes.

PBV is currently working closely with partner organisations and relevant agencies to gather as much information as possible about the situation on the ground.

After conducting a rapid needs assessment, PBV will begin implementing a comprehensive response to support survivors, in collaboration with local community and government groups.

We would greatly appreciate your involvement and support in helping those affected by the flooding in western Japan.

Thank you for your continued support.
