Japan Offers $1.24m For Cyclone Relief

The Government of Japan has decided to implement its Emergency Grant Aid worth US$1.24million in response to Cyclone PAM in four Pacific Island Countries (PICs), namely Vanuatu, Tuvalu, Kiribati and Solomon Islands on March 27, 2015.

The Emergency Grant Aid aims to contribute to the humanitarian efforts in the areas of health and nutrition, water and sanitation, education, food, shelter and emergency medical care.

These funds will be disbursed and used through international organisations (i.e. UNICEF, WFP and IFRC) in this crucial disaster response phase.

Prior to the implementation of Emergency Grant Aid, the Government of Japan has also provided emergency relief goods and assistance through dispatching the Japan Disaster Relief (JDR) Medical Team to Vanuatu.
