Ways to Help Victims of the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami

Posted in Thoughts on 14 March 2011 0 comment

We are getting a little bit off-topic here today. As you all know, Japan just got struck by a magnitude 8.9 earthquake on March 11, 2011. The earthquake has caused huge damage to the nation, including nuclear reactor explosion. Japanese media reported at least 1600+ deaths, most drowned by the wall of water that swept across the northeast coast of the island nation.

Ways to Help

There are some ways to donate/help the victims, below were quoted from BING:

Several organizations are offering support to help victims of the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief. Here are a few ways you can help:

  • The American Red Cross is accepting donations for Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief. Individuals can also text ‘REDCROSS’ to 90999 to donate $10 from their mobile phone.
  • Save the Children is responding to the needs of children and families affected by the earthquake and its aftermath. Donations can be made to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.
  • International Medical Corps is responding to the health needs of the disaster’s victims.
  • World Vision has announced mobilization in response to the earthquake and tsunami.
  • NetHope, a collaboration of the world’s leading humanitarian response organizations is mobilizing efforts to support aid agencies responding in the region.
