Operation Compassion Uses Strategic Plan In Response to Japan.

By , April 12, 2011

Shortly after the earthquake struck Japan, Operation Compassion had a meeting with our partners to determine a response plan for assisting and coordinating a disaster relief effort. With leaders representing churches and agencies throughout Japan such as CRASH, JESDR, Agape CGN and resettled Philippine groups, a strategic plan was formulated in three phases.
The first phase of a strategic plan was raising financial assistance for Japan. The fundraising would allow immediate financial assistance to reach Japan to help purchase supplies and product until these items could be shipped.

Phase two was the airlifting of certain critical supplies to our partners in Japan. Operation Compassion is sending requested items that are vital to their recovery and continued survival. One of the most important items is gas cans. Since utilities are shut off in the disaster areas, people have difficulty getting in and out without adequate access to gas. These gas cans allow people to take a supply of gas with them allowing for more freedom of travel.

In addition, phase three is also underway as Operation Compassion is staging long term supplies in various locations around the world for distribution in Japan. Permission to clear these items through customs has been granted.

With the continuation of aftershocks and more damage occurring, Japan will be needing disaster assistance for some time to come. Operation Compassion is committed to helping the Japanese people fully recover. Join us in this effort by donating today.
