Chaplains’ Cafe is designed as a safe learning space for anyone who is interested in providing emotional and spiritual care.

Dear CRASH Prayer Partners and Supporters
Thank you again for your prayers and financial supports. CRASH Japan sent a volunteer team to the biggest shelter in Joso city today. There were about 200 people who evacuated from the flood. Today we served 100 crepes and hot coffees and teas to the survivors. We also offered footbath and hand massage.
They sat and enjoyed conversations with CRASH Japan’s emotional caregivers. Most of them were the older people. Some younger and small children were among them. They told us the stories how they survived through the flood in September. They also told us that they struggled with facing difficult realities.
We served them though active listening and provided emotional care. Please keep praying for and support CRASH Japan as we continue to serve the survivors.

Can you help with sweets?

We’re planning to open a mobile cafe at a shelter in Ibaraki-ken on Saturday, Oct.17th. Would you make baked sweets for survivors with love?
If you can bring them to our office on Friday, Oct 16th, please send us a message:) Onegaishimasu!

A CRASH initial volunteer team visited one of the severely affected areas (Tenno area) in Kure city, where landslides are continuing and there is still no running water in some areas. After the flood the survivors are also suffering from heat wave - today's temperature was over 35°C (95°F). The Kure Christian volunteer center will begin tomorrow to send volunteers to help the survivors. CRASH Japan is going to support them through volunteer coordination and emotional and spiritual care.

Please keep praying for CRASH and help us by your generous donations. crashjapan.com/en/donate/

To give you an idea of how wide-spread this disaster is, here is animation of the amount of water in the soil over time in Western Japan. The saturation of the soil made the mountainous areas ripe for landslides.

These graphs and maps compiled by NHK World illustrate the intensity and scope of the worst torrential rains in Japan in 30 years. The amount of rain soaking the ground raised the risk of mudslides.
