With this project I want to gather together all the forces I possibly can from around the world, to help funding money to Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.
11th of March 2011 tragedy struck the country of Japan, with a massive earthquake and aftershocks. Not only that but a tsunami also struck Japan and countries all around the Pacific Basin. Now thousands of people have already died and the numbers of deaths are still increasing. Many houndreds of children and their families are now missing.
The earthquake hitting Japan with 8,9 in force of the ritcher magnitude scale is actually the 5th worse earthquake in history. It is the worst earthquake to hit Japan in at least a century.
I personally work daily with a project for Save the Children's Federation office in Oslo, Norway. I love my work because it is a way of giving back to so many children and their families worldwide.
With your help today we can help save lifes and especially help these children and their families through Save The Children Federation.
Save the Children has launched the appeal for £1 million to do the following:
- Deliver psychosocial support to help overcome the shock and stress that the disaster and devastation has caused
- Set up child friendly spaces to provide a protective environment where children can spend time with other children and trained teachers. This service also allows parents much needed time that they can dedicate to investigating food sources, work, accommodation and locating other friends and family
- Monitor the nuclear power plant and prepare contingency plans for any future changes
Children are the most voulnarable in disasters like this one, the earhquake in Haiti and New Zealand. With your donation and support to this emergency fund you are helping so many through their time of catastrophy. Children and their families are now living a life of despair with the loss of the loved ones, loss of their homes and buisness, flooding and in constant fair of afterquakes and the brutal force of the tsunami wave. They are living in a nightmare, we as fellow human being must help them.
Together we can make a hope for them. Together we can mobilize donations through this very important fundraiser.
Save the Children's Eiichi Sadamatsu in central Toyko said, "This is a major natural disaster that has caused large scale damage along Japan's east coast. We are extremely concerned for the welfare of children and their families who have been affected by the disaster. We stand ready to meet the needs of children who are always the most vulnerable in a disaster.”
