Nanjo City offers aid to disaster families

Date Posted: 2011-03-31

Nanjo City is the first in Okinawa to step forward and offer assistance to families who have suffered losses in the massive 9.0 magnitude Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami.

The city’s passed a support measure policy to accept a maximum of 200 households, temporarily relocating them to Okinawa. Those eligible will be people whose homes were destroyed, with priority going to those with school age children or students because the new school term begins in April.

Nanjo City will provide monthly assistance of ¥50,000 per family for up to three months. The city is working with the Nanjo City Tourist Association to identify recipients. “We want to support parents who are intent on revival of the disaster stricken area,” says Nanjo City Mayor Kageharu Koja. “We want to secure students’ educational environment, and we’ll make the most of our household know-how.” The city says it recognizes that rehabilitation is going to be a long term project, and that Nanjo City will prepare a support system.
