Solidarity with Japan: Field of Interventions

  1. 1. Axes d’intervention Solidarité Japon – Fondation de France –26 avril 2011 1 / 2 SOLIDARITY WITH JAPAN Fields of intervention of Fondation de France Following the earthquake and tsunami of March 11, 2011 which damaged the North-Eastern areas of the archipelago, the Fondation de France has opened a fund dedicated to allow French and Japanese residents in France, as well as professional groups linked with Japan, to express their solidarity towards the most affected population by this major disaster. Thanks to its 20 years of experience in post-emergency contexts in France and abroad, Fondation de France is well known for its support to NGO projects in previous disasters: earthquake in Boumerdès in Algeria (2003), tsunami in south-east Asia, earthquake in Haiti (2010), Xynthia hurricane in France (2010)… With regard to the disaster in Japan, Fondation de France will provide financial support to post- emergency projects carried on by Japanese NGOs. Financial support of Fondation de France will be provided as a matter of priority to projects which direct beneficiaries are the most vulnerable affected populations of North-Eastern areas of Tôhoku and Kantô. Eligible projects will cover as a matter of priority the following fields of intervention: - Agriculture and fishery: contributing to re-install small farms, agricultural or fishery production units located in areas that have been strongly damaged by the tsunami or contaminated by the accident of the nuclear power station; - Accompanying of elderly or disabled persons: supporting elderly or disabled persons especially for those who are isolated from any social or family link, and restoring a safe environment which safeguards their dignity; - Psycho-social support: contributing to restore the social and family links and preventing post-traumatic through psycho-social support in particularly for young people; - Access to health care: providing access to health care, access to medical and psychological care to people affected by the disaster, preventing the risks of complication; - Collective support: promoting networking, community-based actions, providing solutions for temporary housing, etc. Fondation de France remains open to any other proposal from associations and Japanese NGOs, which have the capacity to adapt themselves to the evolution of the needs of disaster-affected people and can quickly respond to a local problem. The proposed projects must ensure full participation of beneficiaries in the design and implementation of the actions. They must also fit into the Japanese government and ensure an optimal coordination with other international and national coordination mechanisms, such as the Japan Platform, designated by
