Habitat for Humanity Responds to Devastation Triggered by Earthquake in Japan
March 14, 2011
Habitat for Humanity Canada sends its thoughts and prayers to all those affected by the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that devastated areas of Japan on March 11th. In response, we are currently working with our international office, Habitat for Humanity Japan, and other NGO partners to assess the situation, and determine how and where Habitat for Humanity can be of most help.
In the near term, Habitat will be sending leadership representatives to Japan to determine potential operational plans. We expect the response to include domestic volunteer engagement with key NGO partners, and directing activities focused on home clean-up and repair, although this latter element will be a function of resources, capacity, and specific needs of those affected by this disaster.
Yours In Partnership,
