【JPN Relief-4】 Thousands Support HFH's Response in Earthquake-Hit Japan
Donate to Help Japan Rebuild!
Thousands of people have responded to Habitat for Humanity's appeal for funds and volunteers to help with the earthquake and tsunami response in Japan.
One month on from the disaster, the death toll stands at over 13,000, with more than 15,000 people still missing.
The scale of the devastation, the severe weather and the unfolding nuclear situation meant that the search and rescue phase of emergency operation continued for several weeks and has only just been lifted.
Habitat teams have returned from conducting an assessment of affected areas and will be presenting response operation details shortly.

Habitat expects to mobilize local volunteers to work with other organizations in the clean-up and repair process, targeting communities severely affected by the earthquake and tsunami.
Habitat International, together with Habitat Japan, are liaising with government authorities and other organizations, and expect their response operation to last one-and-a-half years.
