【JPN Relief-19】Standard Chartered Raises over 32m yen
Donate to Help Japan Rebuild!
Standard Chartered Bank employees and customers have raised over 32,000,000 yen (US$400,000) for Habitat for Humanity's 'Rebuilding Japan' program, to support those affected by the earthquake and tsunami of 11 March.
"We are so grateful for this donation from Standard Chartered. It will allow us to assist those whose homes were damaged by the brutal tsunami waves, and those who lost their homes completely and are currently living in temporary shelters", said Kentaro Yamazaki, head of Habitat for Humanity Japan.
This recent donation builds on Standard Chartered existing relationship with Habitat for Humanity, established after the severe flooding in Pakistan in 2010.
Through the 'Rebuilding Japan' disaster response program, Habitat for Humanity Japan aims to clear debris and clean 300 homes, repair 100 homes and distribute 1,000 'home starter' kits.
Habitat for Humanity Japan volunteers are clearing away debris, pulling out wet flooring and insulation and undertaking housing repair works - doing everything necessary to ensure that families currently in evacuation centers, or with friends and family, can return to clean and healthy homes.
