An Excellent Way to Donate to the Victims of Japan’s Earthquake/Tsunami/Radiation

Catholic Relief Services  

Help Survivors of the Japan Tsunami

Catholic Relief Services is working with Caritas International and others to find pathways to bring aid to the many thousands stricken by the 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that devastated northern Japan on March 11. 

Caritas Japan is providing emergency relief to survivors of this disaster. Workers are opening shelters for evacuees from Sendai, which received extensive tsunami damage, and from Fukushima, the site of failing nuclear reactors. Caritas Japan is also distributing much-needed supplies, such as blankets. And some parishes in the Diocese of Sendai have indicated they are ready to host relief volunteers from other parts of the country.

Long-term recovery, though, will require that Caritas Japan play a much larger role. In a recent statement, Caritas Japan says that the damage is not only physical but also psychological: “We will accompany people who lost their beloved [ones], who lost everything and may stay at temporary shelters, and who have no one to rely on.”

Please give generously to help our brothers and sisters affected by this massive disaster.
