Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund
The Japan Society has watched with deep sadness as news unfolds of the
scale of damage from the Tohoku Pacific earthquake on 11 March 2011.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy and condolences to all who have lost
loved ones or been affected by the disastrous events.

The Japan Society Tohoku Earthquake Relief Fund will channel all donations received to the work of voluntary and community organisations (NPOs) working in the most affected prefectures. Once the emergency relief work has finished, and the basic physical needs of the victims of the disaster have been met, there will be an immense amount to be done to rebuild lives and livelihoods. We believe that grassroots organisations, working with their local stakeholders, are best equipped to deliver long-term support through activities for which they themselves identify the need. The Japan Society will work with representatives and support networks of local NPOs to ensure that funds raised reach organizations that can make the maximum impact through locally agreed recovery projects.
As the local organizations begin to get back into action and identify needs, we will be updating our website with news of the work.
Thank you for your support.
