Challenge

On March 11, 2011, the northeastern coast of Japan was struck by a tsunami after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake occurred 80 miles offshore. The tsunami waves caused major destruction in northern Japan. Thousands remain unaccounted for and nearly 300,000 are in temporary shelters.

Solution

This project will disburse funds to organizations providing relief and emergency services to victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

Long-Term Impact

Major disasters always require a huge amount of international support to provide relief and long term recovery efforts. In the case of Japan, these initial funds will help survivors and victims get necessary services.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
