The devastation of the double catastrophe that hit Japan on 11th March 2011 is undeniable. It’s so painful to see and hear the news reporting so much damage to properties and loss of lives, survivors coping with scarcity of food and supplies (like heaters). I cannot begin to imagine how it must be for the Japanese people right now.

Japan had been one of the most generous benefactors during Hurricane Katrina, Earthquake in Haiti and Indonesia, among others. They deserve and need our support. Any small amount will go a long way for the people of Japan.

* We can save up on overseas money transfer fees by collecting in groups.
