Directory of Aid Agencies

Welcome!

Japan Disaster: Aid agencies brace for tsunami. Paul Conneally said “It was not clear whether Japan would request international assistance because its emergency services and civil defense mechanisms are highly developed, according to aid officials in Geneva.” http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/world/archives/2011/03/12/2003498009

Below is a general listing directory of some typical disaster response aid agencies (not intended to reflect a list of agencies deployed in Japan) .  Don’t see your group?  Please list it in comments with a link to your story and we’ll get you added.  Do you have something to offer or want to help the recovery effort?   Below are alot of agencies that could use volunteers.  You can be a virtual volunteer in many.

    Because of the scale of the disaster and need for humanitarian aid, Raytheon will make a corporate donation of $500,000 to the American Red Cross in support of the Japan earthquake disaster relief efforts. The corporate gift includes funds from the Raytheon Annual Disaster Relief Fund, a company fund established to respond to major disasters.

    In total, Raytheon’s support through company and employee donations has the potential to reach $1.5 million
