|Help Earthquake, tsunami victims in Japan|
Foundation sets up fund to help earthquake, tsunami victims in Japan
In response to the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on 11 March, The Rotary Foundation established the Rotary Japan and Pacific Islands Disaster Recovery Fund, which will support recovery projects in the affected areas.
The 8.9-magnitude earthquake, Japan's largest in the last century, caused a devastating tsunami that swept over northern coastal towns. More than 200 people are confirmed dead, but government officials say the death toll will rise.
Rotarians, clubs, and districts can contribute cash and District Designated Fund (DDF) allocations to the fund. Learn more.
The Foundation will begin accepting online contributions by 14 March.
