And the harsh reality that awaited those who finally managed to escape. People with mental disorders who were showered with boos and were told to "Get out!" of the evacuation shelters. A woman who was unable to sleep on the floor, and had no choice but to sit in her wheelchair for sixteen days. A blind woman who was forced to remain in the evacuation order zone for five days.
In this situation, several organizations for disabled people and support groups approached to give assistance, and received cooperation from local governments. Due to the disclosure of personal information, door-to-door surveys for the disabled were carried out in Minanmisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture and Rikuzentakata City, Iwate Prefecture. Pointing out the possibility of disaster occurrence, it explores ways of reconstruction in the future and community development, through featuring disaster-affected people and parties concerned.
