Assistance to Residents of Iitate Village in Fukushima Prefecture Forced to Evacuate due to Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station Disaster

In the initial phase of assistance, BHN provided internet access, video phones, teleconferencing systems and health care equipment to temporary evacuation facilities. Responding to the needs of further health care because of prolonged evacuation without medical services, we started medical consultation, exercise training sessions and Thai massage with cooperation of professionals. We keep assisting the residents on the use of ICT, and in addition, we hold get-together tea parties on a regular basis.
