Red Cross Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal 2011

The Australian Red Cross is running an appeal to assist people affected by the earthquake and tsunami disaster, which hit North East Japan recently. In Japan, more than 9,000 have died, more than 12,000 are missing with many more injured. More than 360,000 people remain displaced or evacuated across the affected region. More than 73,000 houses have been destroyed or damaged and more than a million people still have either no water or electricity. Many areas across the Pacific were also affected due to the tsunami.

The Australian Red Cross is running the Japan and Pacific Disaster Appeal 2011 to assist those affected by the disaster. The Australian Red Cross has been assisting their partner organisation, Japanese Red Cross Society in the response to this disaster.
