Peace Boat has carried out emergency relief operations for the past 20 years, delivering emergency assistance and raising funds, as well as coordinating the dispatch of experienced logisticians, interpreters and volunteer teams to disaster-affected areas all over the world.

Following the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami 2011, NGO Peace Boat established the Peace Boat Disaster Relief Volunteer Center (PBV), a specialist organization to focus on the relief and recovery of communities affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami; domestic and international disaster relief; and disaster risk reduction, such as the training, dispatch and coordination of volunteers.

Peace Boat and PBV believe that, above all else, people are the key to reducing disaster risk, building resilience and minimizing impacts of disasters.
