Miyamoto Global Disaster Relief
Nonprofit Earthquake Engineering Experts
Miyamoto Relief is the only nonprofit structural engineering organization in the world providing technical expertise before, during and after a disaster. Our mission is to save thousands of lives through state-of-the-art engineering in communities in need. Miyamoto Relief works globally to save lives through engineering, especially in places affected by disaster. One of the reasons we exist is to send teams of engineers to help affected populations after an earthquake. This is particularly important in developing countries, where the lack of engineering knowledge is critical for the life safety of community.
