Want To Volunteer?
Here are some organizations that are thinking of sending volunteers to Japan in the future for the rebuilding effort. Most organizations are not sending volunteers yet as it is still extremely dangerous, and citizens outside of Japan are still encouraged to refrain from entering the emergency zone.
Christian Relief, Assistance, Support and Hope (CRASH) is a network supporting Christians to do relief work in Japan and around the world. They have a page where they are updating on all of the aid they are currently providing in Japan. Most recently, one of their planned six bases in Meysen Academy (in Sendai city) has been promised two 40-foot containers full of rice and soy, donated from Feed the Hungry. 93 tons of emergency relief supplies are on their way from Yokota Air Base from Samaritan’s Purse.
If you are interested in volunteering with them in Japan, you can sign up to receive more information about it here.
All Hands Volunteers
All Hands Volunteers is an USA-based Nonprofit that provides assistance to those affected by natural disasters with housing, meals, tools, and work. If you want to know more about the situation in Japan from their staff, they have a series of videos uploaded on their site. One is below:
