Miyamoto Global Disaster Relief (Miyamoto Relief) is 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that provides disaster mitigation response, relief and reconstruction services following a natural disaster. We are the only nonprofit structural engineering organization in the world that provides expertise at the critical phases of disaster.
Miyamoto Relief works with national governments, the United Nations, and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) to strategize and implement disaster mitigation programs. Having responded to more than 100 earthquakes and hurricanes, our personnel provide crucial post-disaster activities, including structural safety assessment, damage data collection, debris management, human capacity building, assistance establishing building code technical platforms, and relief material logistics. To help prevent further structural failures, we train local engineers and contractors in earthquake resistance engineering practices.
