ALL THE BENEFITS WILL GO TO JOICFP, JAPANESE ORGANIZATION FOR INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION IN FAMILY PLANNING.
THEY'LL USE THE BENEFITS FOR THEIR ACTION IN HELPING WOMEN, PREGNANT WOMEN AND NEW BORN CHILDREN IN THE EAST JAPANESE EARTHQUAKE AFFECTD AREA.
JOICFP, Japanese Organization for International Cooperation in Family Planning :
- Project area:
Mainly Iwate Prefecture, Miyagi Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture
- Beneficiaries :
Focus on women, pregnant women, new born children
- Summary of our project :
With our wish to be a help for women, pregnant women and new born children who were affected by this devastating disaster, JOICFP, International NGO, has started our humanitarian assistance in Iwate Prefecture, Miyagi Prefecture, Fukushima Prefecture and Ibaraki Prefecture.
We have witnessed pregnant women who had a hard time to give birth. Mothers have no choice but stay in evacuation centers feeling uncomfortable with breast feeding and clothes changing and spending hard time to find diapers. We have also witnessed women who are under stress and not able to express their needs for sanitary fittings and underwear.
JOICFP is working mainly with midwives who can listen to women's needs under this situation.
In addition, we are also working closely with other organizations such as Japanese Midwives' Associations, Japan Family Planning Association and OXFAM Japan to deliver necessary relief supplies for women's needs.
JOICFP is planning to continue our assistance for women, pregnant women, new born children focusing on the following five activities until end of March, 2012 :
1. Provision of emergency relief supplies for women, pregnant women and new born children
2. Assistance for local midwives' activities (treatment for women and pregnant women, health check, counseling )
3. Assistance for acceptance to maternity hospitals inside or outside of Prefecture
4. Family planning services
5. Financial assistance for pregnant women (provision of fifty-thousand yens)
We kindly ask your assistance for women and pregnant women.
