Global Translators Needed!

Conference covered by NHK Television
Conference covered by NHK Television

Dear Friends of IMCRA

Last year we were finally able to gather together both survivors of and first responders to the significant earthquakes, tsunamis and infrastructure disruption that have plagued Japan at intervals since 2011.  As you'll see from the attached photos and media coverage, the colloquium was a stunning success and we were able to collect a great deal of both personal and practical information, applicable to prevention and recovery both for the people of Japan, as well as for other populations facing similar disasters, as they surely will in the future.

Our dilemma at present is translating all of the collected materials into English ( and ideally into 2 or 3 other key languages) so that the hardships suffered by Japanese survivors will benefit the rest of the world at large.  Although some of our small team of translators want to do this for free, it's a bit much to ask of them and there is a LOT of material

So our report and plea this time is quite simple: If you can find your way clear to help this particular mission financially, now is a good time to do so.  We'd like to get a handbook of response as well as a Medical Journal article (from the perspective of survivors as well as first responders) out by year's end.

The benefits of this material are universal and universally enduring, so many thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Sincerely,

The IMCRA Team
