With a death toll of 179 casualties (as of 11 July), it is Japan's deadliest weather-related disaster in more than three decades.
More than 200,000 people remain without water under the scorching sun, with temperatures hitting 33 Celsius in some of the hardest-hit areas, such as the city of Kurashiki, where Mercy Relief will be conducting emergency relief operations together with a local NGO.
Mercy Relief calls for an urgent appeal for donations to reach our initial crowdfunding goal of $10,000 to bring more humanitarian aid to the affected communities.
