Focus: Onagawa Megumi Project


December 2012

The Onagawa Project of missionary colleagues serving with ReachGlobal will most likely become our primary tsunami recovery ministry partnership starting in 2013. We will be applying much of our EFCCM Disaster Relief funds toward the initial set up costs of the Onagawa Project. This ReachGlobal Project will develop a handicraft enterprise in Onagawa that will serve as a place for gospel networking. 

Onagawa Town in Miyagi Prefecture had a population of about 11,000 before the tsunami of March 11, 2011. But 10% of the town perished on that day. The entire main business district, located on the waterfront, was wiped out. Over 40 percent of the people in Onagawa still live in temporary housing.

Our tsunami ministry updates will therefore now be carreid under the ONAGAWA MEGUMI PROJECT menu item at the top.
