Can you believe it's been a year already? The devastating disaster the world witnessed on March 11th last year must be still vivid in all our memories. With such diligence and patience, Japan has undoubtedly made a great recovery since then. The world sent a flood of generous support to Japan and it seemed as though it was a matter of time for them to see the light in the tunnel.
The recovery effort however is far from over.
Death toll hiked up over 22,000 and more than 300,000 people were displaced from their home. And as we all may be experiencing ourselves, the world's attention has shifted else where. While some organizations aren't accepting any more funds for Japan, both our partners Give2Asia and Mercy Corps are continuing their ongoing work ahead. Take a look at their respective reports on their efforts as well as their upcoming plans.
In the next 4 weeks, Using the power of art, Artists Help Japan will be auctioning more art to raise money as well as providing current news and stories from Japan.
Artists Help Japan Fund with Give2Asia = $94,473
Artists Help Japan London = $12,268(about 7800 British pound) ---->Civic Force Japan
Hope this is a fun challenge for you to be willing to support!
