Japan earthquake and tsunami

Church World Service is providing emergency relief to some 25,000 people now living at 100 evacuation sites in northeastern Japan.  We are focusing on areas where basic needs of food, water, sanitation, electricity and fuel are not being met.

We are working with a coalition of 32 Japanese agencies who know best where resources are needed.

Bringing people together to help communities in need.  It's been our mandate for 65 years, and it's how we're working in Japan.
