Friends of the Earth Kuranda expresses sympathy and solidarity with the people of Japan who have been affected by the devastating earthquake and tsunami.
We are asking people who are able to give money to FoE Japan. All money donated will be passed on to Japanese organisations working on the ground providing support. Currently these organisations are Peace Boat and Japan Chernobyl Foundation.
Peace Boat is delivering food and other goods in Ishinomaki City where the impact of earthquake and tsunami was severe. Until recently the area was isolated due to the destruction of the roads.
Japan Chernobyl Foundation is focused on the area affected by the nuclear accident at Fukushima. Due to the threat of radiation contamination, many drivers refuse to go to the area and people are leaving. However, many people have chosen to stay and need assistance.
