Help Japan

On March 11th, a 9.0 earthquake - the world’s most powerful recorded in history - struck Japan. This impact triggered a destructive tsunami.

Since then, the coast has been hit by more than 150 aftershocks.

The effects of these disasters have displaced Japanese families from their loved ones. Now many are missing, fires have spread, buildings destroyed, towns wiped out and over millions left without water and electricity.

But even in the wake of disaster, there’s always hope. Your contribution can provide emergency supplies and relief required to help those in need.

Canadians can find out how to provide assistance to Japan through the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade website, where there is a list of experienced humanitarian organizations.
