Japan Earthquake Information
The Greater Vancouver JCCA expresses our heartfelt concern for the people in Japan who have been devastated by the recent horrific earthquake and tsunami. We also think about relatives and families here who are waiting for news of their loved ones.
For those wishing further information about donations and those who are seeking contact with family members, we have been given the following information through Tonari Gumi:
- the Red Cross recommends financial rather than material goods. Donations may be made via toll free phone at 1-800-418-1111 or online at www.redcross.ca/helpnow and you can designate “Japan Earthquake Relief”.
- You can also text donations in $5 increments to 30333 and type in ASIA.
- For those trying to contact family in Japan, please contact the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs at 613-943-1055 or toll free at 1-800-387-3124.
