    Humanitarian Relief Efforts for Japan Research Needed?

    ALIPAC Activists,

    Please help us by providing us with research and suggestions for credible relief agencies and fund raising outfits we can immediately support to aid the suffering folks in Japan.

    Our focus is illegal immigration but when something like this happens we want to help and offer our organizations abilities to help our allies like Japan.

    Japan has been a strong ally to America especially in that region.

    Please post any credible relief agencies that are calling for supplies and or donations specifically for the Japan disaster here for us to consider distributing to our national network.

    Sincerely,

    William Gheen

    A comment from the Oxfam (England) site was that the Japanese may have enough resources to deal with emergency relief, so they were not asking for donations, at this time.

    (from CNN)
    International relief extended to devastated Japan
    By Michael Martinez, CNN
    March 12, 2011 2:52 p.m. EST
    STORY HIGHLIGHTS

    * The United Kingdom is among those sending search-and-rescue teams
    * Korea is dispatching rescue dogs
    * The International Atomic Energy Agency is offering its nuclear experts

    (CNN) -- The 8.9-magnitude earthquake and coastline-devouring tsunami that hit Japan has led 49 countries, the European Union and even the International Atomic Energy Agency to band together and offer relief to the devastated island nation.

    With Japan's death toll at more than 900 people, the international relief effort has been spurred by the stark, globally televised videos of homes and offices rattled to near collapse and entire waterfront communities being washed away by a rising ocean.

    The international community's assistance complemented the United States' expansive relief mission, which includes supplies, several warships, search-and-rescue teams and radiation-contamination specialists.

    In addressing one of the bigger potential threats, the international atomic agency's Incident and Emergency Centre has offered technical assistance to Japan in the wake of an explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. An evacuation order for a 20-kilometer (12.4-mile) radius around the plant is affecting tens of thousands of people.

    On Saturday, the United Kingdom said it was sending a team of 59 fire service search-and-rescue specialists, two rescue dogs and a medical support team, according to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

    With a scheduled arrival on Sunday, the crew will immediately join the international search for survivors in shattered and inundated communities, the British office said.

    The teams will take up to 11 tonnes of rescue equipment, including heavy lifting and cutting equipment to extract people trapped in debris, the government said.

    The UK foreign office also dispatched a 10-member consular response team, including British Red Cross workers, to Japan on Saturday morning, the government said.

    South Korea is sending two rescue dogs, two handlers and three assistants to carry out what are expected to be dramatic searches of people inside collapsed structures. The rescue teams were scheduled to arrive Saturday, Japan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a written statement.

    In China, Premier Wen Jiabao, who expressed "deep sympathy and solicitudes to the Japanese government and people," made a formal offer of assistance. Members of the country's international rescue team were ready to depart for Japan to join in the operations if needed, Chen Jianmin, director of the China Earthquake Administration, told the government's Xinhua News Agency.

    The United States is providing as many 11 warships, with their helicopters, to assist Japanese authorities in rescue and recovery missions.

    The U.S. Agency for International Development was dispatching two urban search-and-rescue teams, one from Fairfax County, Virginia, and the second from Los Angeles County -- totaling 150 people and 12 canines trained to find survivors. They are scheduled to arrive Monday morning in Japan.

    On Saturday, the Japanese foreign ministry listed the 49 countries extending offers of relief, in no particular order: Australia, Taiwan, the United States, South Korea, China, Mexico, Thailand, New Zealand, Israel, Singapore, Indonesia, Azerbaijan, India, Russia, Turkey, Germany, France, Belgium, Ukraine, Slovakia, United Arab Emirates, Switzerland, Hungary, Poland, Jordan, the United Kingdom, Chile, Spain, Greece, Hong Kong, Pakistan, Denmark, Serbia, Uruguay, Mongolia, Ecuador, Iran, Kyrgyz Republic, Malaysia, Argentine, Philippines, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Kosovo, Iceland, Norway, Romania, and Slovenia.

    Japan Disaster Relief: Where to Give With Thousands Feared Missing, Relief Organizations Offer Assistance
    An estimated 200,000 people are living in temporary shelters in the wake of Friday's Japan earthquake, and more than one million households are without water.

    With thousands of people still unaccounted for and concerns about radiation dangers after an explosion at a Japanese nuclear power plant, the total number of fatalities is expected to rise.

    Rescue and recovery efforts have already begun and are expected to last for months, with numerous international organizations and governments offering assistance. Prime Minister Naoto Kan said he dispatched 50,000 troops for recovery efforts as powerful aftershocks continue to rattle the region.

    Bully for them! It's nice to see a nation opt to stand on their own two feet for a change (use their own resources) vice going around the world with hat in had. The Japenese are a proud people and I commend them for not asking for, or expecting, handouts following such devestation.
