Tags: , , , ,

A news video (in Japanese only) on recent Disaster Relief Hinokishin Corps’ (DRHC) efforts has been posted on the Tenrikyo Japanese website. Here is a translation of the narration:

The Tenrikyo DRHC was dispatched on August 2 to areas affected by torrential rain in Niigata.

The downpour in Fukushima and Niigata prefectures between July 27 and 30 reached record proportions.

Niigata Prefecture was particularly hard hit, and the local Niigata Diocese DRHC mobilized on August 2 in Agamachi and Uonuma City to begin the recovery effort.

Further, a second unit comprised of DRHC teams from six dioceses and Honbu (Church Headquarters) were mobilized between August 5 and 8 to remove debris. Also, a third unit was mobilized between August 9 and 12 to continue the relief effort.
