Earthquakes Rock SW Japan: Asian Access Provides Relief
Japan was shaken once again with two devastating earthquakes in Kyushu, Japan:
- More than 250,000 people are homeless
- At least 41 have died
- And dozens more are feared trapped under the rubble
- At least 2000 people were treated for injuries, 200 are in serious condition
It’s a race against time to try to rescue them says Prime Minister Abe. See the latest BBC report here: Japan earthquake: Thousands remain without vital services
Asian Access Disaster Relief Philosophy
In line with Asian Access philosophy of coming alongside local partners, we received a $100,000 giving challenge grant to bring hope and healing in the midst of the disaster.
"Our principles of coming along side of churches to ministered to the communities affected by the earthquake would be the same as the Northeast triple disasters. For example, one church in the evacuation zone with 600 people never received food/water yet since yesterday. The pastor is asking us to bring food/water. We would like to help the pastor/church to help the community instead of "WE" help the community."
— Takeshi Takazawa, National Director Asian Access/Japan
