2019 Saga Heavy Rains
Heavy rain lashed northern areas of the Kyushu region on August 27, causing floods in many places. HuMA immediately sent an assessment team on August 30th. In the result of the assessment, starting from the 31st, we dispatched the medical staff in Omachi, Saga Prefecture where residential areas and farmland are seen flooded.

This is the last regular visit. We are considering an evaluation survey on HuMA’s support activity in the summer of 2020 (about one year after the disaster).

The evacuation centers have been closed and the disaster areas are being reconstructed, but there seems to be still much we can do, such as cooperation in organizing records at the time of disaster, and more.

HuMA visited in Saga again. Two months have passed since the disaster occured, and the number of evacuees had decreased. All external support organizations withdrawed as of today; this means that the administration would be forced to have a more busy time. To decrease the burden of fatigue, we will continue to provide support.

Period: September 19 – September 22, 2019
Members: Total of 4 – Doctor(1), Nurse(2), Logistician (1)

Due to the typhoon coming on the weekend, we dispatched medical members again to prepare for acceptance in anticipation of an increase in the number of evacuees. Also, we visited and check the elderlies who live alone.
