Ten years since the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami

On this same day 11 March in 2011 a magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, killing 18,428 people and displacing 470,000 others. The tsunami also caused serious damage to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, resulting in a reactor core meltdown.  11 March is the memorial day of the catastrophe. 

On this occasion, the Japanese Red Cross Society and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies have issued the joint message of appreciation to the partners and supporters around the world. Please find attached.

You can find the report published by the JRCS HERE.

The report provides information on how the population has been assisted over the last 10 years and what has been done to mitigate the effects of the disaster. The people of Latvia were also among those who donated money to help the people of Japan.

On behalf of the beneficiaries, the Japanese Red Cross Society has deeply appreciated contributions and solidarities for these ten years.

On behalf of Latvian Red Cross, we would like to express our deepest gratitude to all those people in Latvia who shared their love and care by donating and providing their help to the severely injured Japan!
