Volunteer groups provide a civil society function that governments may lack; they can work sensitively and flexibly, relying on local knowledge and contacts to provide disister relief services.

IDRO Japan aims to provide aid and assistance for immediate post-disaster relief as well as long-term support, distributing food, clothing and toiletries, and gathering information for future relief efforts while remaining self-sufficient, without hampering the efforts of others.

IDRO Japan collaborates with other NPOs to network with local communities, engaging with local residents and understanding what is needed to be done. As word of our work spreads, other residents approach us with requests for assistance. This has proven to be an efficient method of matching volunteers with residents affected by the natural disasters.
