Message by Manu Gupta, Chairperson, ADRRN
In light of the March 11 tragedy in Tohoku region of Japan, the ADRRN would like to express its deepest sympathy for the people of Japan.
Friends across Asia are standing in solidarity and support with the Japanese civil society. They are ready to offer both manpower and material assistance in the affected areas. The ADRRN secretariat is closely coordinating with the ADRRN member organization in Japan - Seeds Asia. Mr. Mihir Joshi (mihir@seedsindia.org) at the ADRRN Secretariat is currently receiving all requests for support.
As of today, there are thousands that are still trapped under collapsed buildings. We do hope that each one of them is saved alive. Also there is a great fear of radiation effects. We sincerely hope that all people are saved from exposure to radiation.
With our prayers for the repose of all those lives have perished and a quick and healthy recovery for the survivors.
In solidarity,
Manu Gupta

ADRRN representatives participate in ITW-2010

28/07/2010
A rich insight on humanitarian aid, risk reduction and development issues in the Asian region through stories, research papers, books, photo essays and videos.
Its been the 19th day we at Participatory Development Initiatives have almost build strong connections to flood survivors which have migrated in thousands to the main town of Shikarpur. From what it looks like, a sea of people in corners of streets, on barrages, inside government schools, hospitals, mosques and anywhere they could find a place to put the few of their belongings that were left with them.
