During the tsunami, an estimated 748,000 buildings were damaged and almost 128,000 buildings collapsed, which severely impacted the economic stability of thousands of businesses in the area.
The Salvation Army helped business owners like Mr. Kato restore their livelihoods by constructing temporary shopping centers, where local business owners could operate while offering employment and services to the community. Along with general emergency relief and infrastructure support, the Salvation Army also provided resources for local fishermen and their unions to further boost economic recovery.
