WANDAA is hoping to send several care package shipments to the victims of the Japan earthquakes and tsunami. They will coordinate flight information for sending the relief packages and gather the information of what is truly needed over the next day or so. We hope you can help.
WANDAA provides assistance to those effected by natural disasters. With the help of donors, WANDAA plans on providing a wide array of assistance to victims of natural disasters from food, water, clothing and the education and assistance to rebuild.
..."Preliminary estimates put repair costs from the earthquake and tsunami in the tens of billions of dollars — a huge blow for an economy that lost its place as the world's No. 2 to China last year, and was already in a fragile state.
Tens of billions of dollars are expected to be needed to rebuild homes, roads and other infrastructure — requiring public spending that will add to the national debt."...The Associated Press
