The Great East Japan Earthquake – support and outreach from Tono City and its residents

City of Tono, Iwate Prefecture, Japan

At the headquarters of the Tono City Emergency Response Centre, staff reviewed latest reports – including those from WHO. At times it was extremely difficult. At one point there was a two day power cut and it became almost impossible to work with no telephone communication. But the staff and volunteers were totally dedicated, and continued working day and night, helping as best they could.
