がんばっぺ石巻

The Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011 shook the ground and raised the sea bed. The result was a devastating tsunami that washed away large portions of the coastal areas of the Tohoku and Kanto regions. Over 15,000 innocent lives were lost across the country, and over 7,000 people are still missing (as of July 1, 2011). Many homes and vehicles have also disappeared. The damage has also had an enormous affect on various businesses.

 

In our dear homeland in Ishinomaki, approximately 67% (approximately 1,800 companies) of all businesses were damaged by the tsunami, with buildings either partially or fully collapsed. Some companies were forced to shut down, with many people losing their jobs. These people are still living in a state of anxiety. The employers have also lost their livelihoods.
It may be even more devastating for employers whose office was damaged while their home remained safe.
This is because these people will be exempt from lifestyle rebuilding support policies and cannot receive any donations.
They cannot receive any unemployment benefits, and they are forced to strive onward while using their savings and bearing the responsibility of rebuilding their businesses. There is also the trap of the double-loaning required for the road for recovery.
“Ganbappe Ishinomaki” is a website that aims to support the businesses that are fighting to rebuild themselves.

Hiroshi Kameyama, mayor of Ishinomaki City

 

The Great East Japan Earthquake on March 11, 2011, with its violent tremors never before experienced in modern times, along with the giant tsunami that followed, brought havoc to the Ishinomaki region. We are now working together extremely hard to rebuild Ishinomaki. The rebuilding of businesses that have been hit so hard by the disaster is a significant focus, and we sincerely pray for the recovery of the shops and factories that were a means of making a living for so many Ishinomaki residents. We ask everyone to support our efforts to rebuild the Ishinomaki business community.
