Over $2.6MM Raised for Ongoing Relief Efforts in Japan

Fundraising (May 31, 2011, San Francisco, CA)  The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) announced that the Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund has raised $2,637,850.66 to date and more funds have been allocated to organizations in Japan.

On April 18, the JCCCNC sent two volunteers to meet with the organizations that have received funds from the JCCCNC and other non-governmental and service organizations to determine the changing needs, gaps in serv ices, visit the Tohoku region and determine strategies to address the mental health needs and post traumatic stress counseling needs. As a result of the visit, the JCCCNC was able to identify several other organizations that were meeting specific needs and unmet gaps in services. Donations totaling $1,750,000 have been sent and allocated to the following organizations working to provide services and relief for the victims of the earthquake, tsunami and threat of nuclear radiation.

About the Relief Fund

The Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund was established to help the victims of the Great Tohoko Earthquake and Tsunami which took place on March 11, 2011.  Our relief campaign is a community based and volunteer driven effort. 100% of the donations received are going directly to citizen relief efforts that are actively on the ground providing support to the victims through the National YMCAs of Japan and other Non-Governmental Organizations that the JCCCNC has very long relationships with since the 1995 Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake centered in Kobe. The funds will focus on supporting the victims and those who need it most but are often forgotten: the elderly, children, the physically and mentally challenged and the migrant communities.

The Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund is a three-fold plan over the next several months.
