WHY DO WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT?
Why ‘Pray for Japan’ in Cambodia?
On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami hit northeastern Japan. Nearly 22,000 people have been reported dead or missing. Since then, we have been receiving many words of compassion and encouragement from the people of Cambodia. We believe these words can help those who are affected by the disaster to overcome the difficulties. As Japanese NGOs working in Cambodia, we expect this event to be an opportunity to put together voices and support from Cambodian people and deliver them to the people of Japan. Japan has a long history of supporting Cambodia. We hope this event will further strengthen the friendship between Cambodia and Japan.
Japanese NGOs assistance for the disaster-hit areas
A number of NGOs are currently assisting victims in the disaster-hit areas through various means. Our interventions include distributing basic necessities to the survivors, serving hot meals at evacuation shelters, providing medical care and supplies, and counseling services. As the needs in the affected areas changes daily and expected to remain enormous for years to come, NGOs play a key role in providing necessary services to meet those needs.
WHERE YOUR DONATION WILL GO?
NGO Relief Fund for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami
Your valued contributions will save lives and recover livelihoods of the people affected by the disaster. We partner with Japanese NGOs actively engaged in emergency and recovery assistance through JANIC (Japan NGO Center for International Cooperation, http://www.janic.org/en/), a network organization coordinating the financial support for NGOs assisting the disaster victims. All the donations made at this event will go to a pool fund to support activities of 28 NGOs and be distributed equally among them.
