Japan Tsunami Disaster Relief

Emergency Relief

An earthquake measuring 8.9 struck the Northern coast of Japan on the 11th of March destroying houses and triggering a devastating tsunami. While it is too early to know the full scope of the destruction, it is clear that the earthquake and tsunami have caused major damage across large areas of the country. Hundreds have lost their lives due to the severity of the quake, and hundreds more are missing. Yet thousands of lives have presumably been saved by Japan’s strict earthquake-resistant building codes.

The UN has alerted a global network of disaster response organizations to prepare to respond to the crisis caused by the earthquake and tsunami. Japanese emergency task forces are evacuating residents from vulnerable areas as aftershocks continue to rock the area.

Following our discussion with the Japanese Embassy and our regional partners, Zakat Foundation of America dispatched a team to Japan to assess the situation and begin implementing emergency relief in the most needed areas.
