Japan: A Sincere “ARIGATO” for Your Support of AAR JAPAN’s Great East Japan Earthquake Relief Activities

Since the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami struck the northern regions of Japan on March 11th 2011, AAR JAPAN has been receiving material donations, financial funding and logistical assistance on an unprecedented scale, both domestically and internationally.

Our endeavors to aid the disaster victims are still in progress, but at this time we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to those individuals and organizations that have generously extended their helping hands. Without them, relief activities carried out in the areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami would never have been possible. AAR JAPAN is committed to continuing to direct all the support received from our donors to the disaster victims in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
