Japan is in a state of emergency. A 9.0 magnitude earthquake rocked Japan on March 11, 2011, triggering a deadly tsunami. At the Fukushima nuclear plant, the quake caused massive explosions which threaten surrounding communities. An estimated 100,000 children have been displaced from their homes. Many children in Japan are scared and lonely - not knowing if they will ever again be safe at home.


Save the Children's relief efforts in Japan include specially equipped child-friendly spaces where kids can play, and express their feelings about what they endured, under the supervision of caring, trained adults.

Long-Term Impact

During emergencies in the past, we’ve helped children feel safe and secure. Working along side their community, we can provide children and families in Japan with the support they need to feel that some day soon, things will get better.
