Typhoon Hagibis made landfall in Japan on October 12, 2019. Widespread torrential rains, strong winds and subsequent flooding and landslides followed in many parts of central Japan. The ACT Forum Japan has called for skilled volunteers, and an operations base is being created in partnership with Operation Blessing Japan, which will support volunteer dispatch. CWS is partnering with a local organization, Awa Bunka Isan Forum (Awa Cultural Heritage Forum), for immediate response and support to preserve the culture and history of the area.
