Japan Emergency Relief

By American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)

Posted on 15th March 2011

Japan's recent 8.9 earthquake, the most powerful to hit Japan in more than 100 years, has killed thousands of people and caused much damage through massive flooding.  In the wake of this disaster, JDC reached out to the Japanese Government to offer its expertise in earthquake and tsunami-related response. JDC has substantial experience in post-tsunami and earthquake recovery through its relief and reconstruction projects in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Maldives and India following the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004. JDC is now conducting an up-to-the-minute assessment of the situation in Japan and has activated its network of partners to determine immediate needs of the hardest-hit areas. JDC is collecting funds for these critical relief efforts. Donate here.

The Jewish values found within this cause include:

Clothing the Unclothed - Malbish Arumim
Guarding the Earth - L'ovdah U'l'shomrah
Poverty - O’ni
Saving a Life - Pikuach Nefesh
