After the earthquake and the tsunami struck the north of Japan last Friday we placed an appeal for donations on this blog and some other sites to help us make a useful contribution to the relief work that is so urgently needed.
So far, we have received donations from concerned citizens in Canada, England, Israel, Scotland, South Africa, and the USA.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to everybody who has so kindly donated in response to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
ANT-Hiroshima is now cooperating with other Hiroshima-based NGOs to create a relief network to deliver aid to the victims.
Actually, at present we are unable to get relief workers into the immediate disaster area, however, ANT-Hiroshima has already taken in a few of the displaced people in Hiroshima and we are working to provide them with immediate necessities such as food, shelter and daily necessities.
We are also lobbying the Hirshima city government in the hope that they will agree to provide shelter on a more extensive scale.
Day be day we will continue to do what we can.
We also hope that out of the current crisis in Japan we will be able to build a stronger worldwide network of people to help us support disaster victims around the world.
If anybody reading this blog has any special experience or suggestions to help us in our relief efforts, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
And, if you would like to donate, please select one of the buttons in the right hand column, according to your means.
To all our friends and donors, thank you again for your support.
