Japan ReliefTHREE MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP FINANCIALLY:
A. Orthodox Presbyterian Church
This site includes detailed, informative updates about Christian pastors mobilizing and taking aid to isolated communities within a day or two of the disaster. In Update 10 (March 25) Cal Cummings writes, "On Wednesday, my sons Caleb and Luke and I drove up to Ishinomaki to contact and volunteer at several shelters, seeking to build ongoing relationships. What an unbelievable scene! I have never seen or imagined such massive destruction. The chaos of the deep seemed to have been vomited up everywhere. . ." Read about lots of heroes here!
B. Youth for Christ International is asking for funds specifically for bicycles and tents with cooking supllies for Japanese made homeless by the earthquakes/tsunami--some of them still commute to their jobs. NOTE: When giving to organizations, you can trust those with the seal of the Evangelical Council of Financial Accountability (ECFA).
1. Bicycles – Due to a major fuel shortage and damage to the roads and train tracks, people are unable to travel by train or cars in the affected areas. Youth for Christ will purchase a number of bicycles that have cargo capabilities to be able to transport the sick and injured to clinics and hospitals regardless of the condition of the roads. They will also provide people access to food and water.
