    AmeriCares Planning Relief Effort as Government Mounts Massive Rescue Effort

    March 14, 2011

    In the aftermath of the largest natural disaster ever to strike Japan, the numbers being reported by the government are staggering, and on the rise. More than 1,800 have died, over 10,000 remain missing, and some 500,000 people have been evacuated from the impact zone. Approximately 2.6 million homes remain without electricity and there are widespread shortages of food, water and fuel.

    A massive rescue and relief effort is underway with the Japanese government deploying 100,000 defense force troops to assist emergency operations, along with 190 planes and 45 boats to the affected region in the north.

    In addition, Japan has received offers of assistance from 69 countries worldwide. Rescue and relief operations continue to be hampered by numerous aftershocks, tsunami alerts and fires. Many areas along the northeast coast remain isolated and unreachable by emergency personnel.

    Michelle Jackson, AmeriCares emergency response manager, arrived in Tokyo to join local relief workers in the city of Sendai to assess medical needs and coordinate with government officials and other international partner organizations. AmeriCares is also directly in contact with hospitals treating the injured in Miyagi, Fukashima and Iwate.

    "Hospitals and institutions are still struggling to evaluate their situation as the government grapples with the huge scale of this disaster; we are assessing the most immediate medical needs, and we will be responding," Michelle said. "We are prepared to support hospitals and health care providers with the supplies they need to diagnose, treat and heal survivors."

    American Red Cross Contributes an Initial $10 Million to Assist Japan’s Earthquake and Tsunami Survivors

    .WASHINGTON, Tuesday, March 15, 2011 — The American Red Cross today announced an initial contribution of $10 million to the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist in its ongoing efforts to provide medical care and relief assistance to the people of Japan following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

    “We are grateful for the American public’s generosity and compassion following what has been declared one of the most devastating earthquakes in history,” said David Meltzer, senior vice president of international services with the American Red Cross. “The American Red Cross is in a unique position to help channel that support to our partner in Japan that is playing a critical humanitarian role and comforting the survivors.”

    In addition to financial assistance, a disaster management expert from the American Red Cross arrived in Japan Monday for a week-long mission. She is serving on a seven-person, international team focused on providing high-level support and advice to the Japanese Red Cross, which continues to support the Japanese government’s earthquake and tsunami response.

    The Japanese Red Cross is a highly experienced disaster relief organization with two million volunteers nationwide. Many local volunteers took immediate action following the disaster by distributing relief items, offering hot meals, clearing debris and providing medical transportation.

    As concerns mount about damage to nuclear power plants in the north, the Japanese Red Cross is also focused on supporting the 200,000 people who have been evacuated from the exclusion zone. Many of the Japanese Red Cross branch offices have trained nuclear decontamination teams and equipment, including special tents for decontamination which can be used to support a government response. A specialist medical team at the Nagasaki Red Cross hospital is on standby, ready to receive patients if people become ill as a result of radiation poisoning. Other hospitals in the area are monitoring radiation levels to protect the patients they are currently treating.

    Also be sure to see if your local Fire departments are volunteering S.A.R. crews to Japan. The emergency services people haven't even gotten around to digging through rubble yet. We are considering sponsoring a volunteer fire department's crew and there dogs to go help out.

    When your neighbor's house is on fire, a bucket beats a prayer, without doubt.

    When you face GOD's judgement, I suspect he's not to judge you on what you prayed, but what you did.
