Since 2017, the Japan Consumers’ Co-operative Federation has entered into a deposit agreement with the Japan Committee for UNICEF for UNICEF’s emergency support tents. At the time of the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake, the Japan Committee for UNICEF received a request from the boards of education of local governments in the affected areas, and ordered multipurpose tents from a supply center in Copenhagen (Denmark) to be used by UNICEF at relief sites around the world. Donated to disaster-stricken areas. Based on this experience, the Japan Committee for UNICEF has been cooperating with UNICEF
fundraising activities in various ways on a daily basis, and the Japan Consumers’ Cooperative Federation, which cooperated in procuring emergency relief supplies and transporting them to evacuation centers during the Great East Japan Earthquake. Request for cooperation in preparing for similar large-scale disasters. The Japan Consumers’ Cooperative Federation has entered into a deposit agreement under which the tents will be stored and delivered to disaster-stricken areas through its own logistics network in the event of a disaster. In the Oku-Noto area, there is a lack of locations to serve as bases for volunteer activities due to damaged buildings, so creating bases for volunteer activities has become an issue. The tents donated this time are being used in a variety of ways around the world, including as temporary classrooms and health and medical facilities. This initiative was realized through the collaboration of five parties: the Japan Consumers’ Co-operative Federation, the Japan Committee for UNICEF, the Ishikawa Prefecture UNICEF Association, Co-op Ishikawa, and CX Cargo, a logistics subsidiary of the Japan Consumers’ Co-operative Union. The facility will be used as a base for student volunteers to support reconstruction efforts in the surrounding area, centering on Juzo Shrine.
