Earthquake and tsunami in Japan - Red Cross

Support the Red Cross disaster response in Japan - Online Donation

A massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the eastern coast of Japan at 14:46 local time on Friday 11 March.

Within minutes, the quake triggered a destructive tsunami that hit the eastern coast of Japan with 7-metre-high waves.

The Japanese Red Cross mobilized immediately its staff and volunteers to response the disaster. Priorities at the moment are search and rescue of the survivors and providing first aid and medical care, food, water and shelter to the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

To respond to the needs of those concerned about relatives in the affected regions, the Japanese Red Cross Society, is encouraging those living overseas to make use of the ICRC’s restoring family links web page: www.icrc.org/familylinks.

A documentary film about young people in the Middle East who have grown angry over the authoritarian regimes they live in and who are using the Internet to bring about change in their societies where free speech is controlled or censored. They are part of a new generation that uses the Internet to get the free word out and to organize, mobilize, collaborate and fight injustice.

Among other topics, the production will explore the impact of the Internet and non-traditional media such as Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter and whistle-blowing sites on the Arab world and beyond and to what extent these digital media tools can spur society change.
