Summary

The north coast of Japan was hit by a horrible tsunami after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake that occurred 80 miles offshore. This fund is supporting organizations providing relief and aid to victims.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Tsunami waves caused major destruction in northern Japan. The death toll has now officially crossed 10,000 & more than 17,000 are missing Nearly 300,000 are in temporary shelter. We are working primarily with local Japanese organizations on the ground to provide support. These are listed on the "Reports" tab of this Fund. We will post more details of the specific use of funds as we receive them.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will disburse funds to organizations providing relief and emergency services to victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

Potential Long Term Impact

Major disasters always require a huge amount of international support to provide relief and long term recovery efforts. In the case of Japan, these initial funds will help survivors and victims get necessary services.
