Thank you for your help in raising funds for Japan. Here is an update on the situation:
Update, Saturday, 3/12, 7:07 am, PST: World Vision Japan today is preparing staff members to travel to areas affected by yesterday’s devastating earthquake and tsunami. Staff will assess the needs in affected areas and prepare supplies and programs to serve those left homeless by the twin disasters. “We are now facing the most tragic disaster in our country’s history,” said Kenjiro Ban, Humanitarian and Emergency Affairs Manager, World Vision Japan.
World Vision plans to establish one or more Child-Friendly Spaces–sites for children affected by disasters to resume normal childhood activities and experience structure and security that are often lost following emergency situations.
We appreciate all of your support, and ask that you continue to promote this project in any way you can.
World Vision staff
