2. Issues and Needs

Long-term assistance and response to the needs of local people

The large-scale earthquake happened in Gujarat State, India on 26 January 2001. 41,000 people were wounded or dead, and 920,000 houses were destroyed by this natural disaster. JEN staff members flew to Gujarat and started an emergency assistance for living. First of all, we provided 57 emergency tents to the victims of the earthquake. JEN staff members continued to investigate the local needs and built tents which could protect local people from the rainy season, heat and harsh winter. JEN staffs spent 9 months in Gujarat and built 700 houses with the beneficiaries. Through this project, beneficiaries were encouraged to start resettling their lives.

If the foundation of the house is concrete, it becomes waterproof. In addition, the ceiling is higher than people so that it drew a draft.
