Three staff members from our partner, Peace Winds, distributed food and materials to earthquake survivors in Kesennuma City on Monday.

Here are some of the items they delivered via helicopter from Tokyo:

  • Balloon shelters
  • Emergency tents
  • Blankets
  • Cooking fuel
  • Tarpaulins
  • Pregelatinized rice
  • Bread

The team reports that heavy winds make it difficult to set up the balloon shelters, each of which hold 100 people.

The response team is visiting school buildings that have converted into temporary shelters for the evacuees, and working in close coordination with disaster-control headquarters in Kesennuma.
