Civic Force responds to domestic natural disasters in Japan. Currently, we are delivering urgently needed relief services in the hardest-hit isolated areas of Northeast Japan following the massive earthquake and tsunami on March 11, 2011. Civic Force is a registered not-for-profit organization in Japan that was established in the wake of the Niigata Earthquake crisis of 2004. Our mission is to provide swift and effective emergency services in case of large-scale crises in Japan through two key interventions. First, Civic Force's emergency response teams, led by trained professionals, assess the relief needs and provide lifesaving assistance to the disaster victims in partnership with other organizations and volunteers. Second, Civic Force facilitates coordination of national- and local-level disaster responses among government agencies, NGOs, and businesses. We play a critical role in ensuring communication and information sharing among partners and mobilizing volunteers, funds, and goods to support coordinated relief efforts.
