After a disaster, some perform rescue operations, others open shelters, deliver food, clear rubble and help rebuild. We train workers to provide psychosocial care for children who have been through trauma. This emotional and spiritual care is vital to allow children to restart their lives as children once again. Won't you help us respond to the need in the Philippines? Give today at http://glints.org/crash_japan. Our goal is to raise $10,000 to fund child trauma camps in the Philippines in response to Typhoon #Haiyan and recent calamities.

Why We're Here
On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake shook the east coast of Japan, causing one of the greatest natural disasters in the country's history. While a lot of aid has already been given to help the survivors, there is still much to be done. Thousands of people still live in temporary housing across Tohoku, and much of the coastline remains devastated from the tsunami triggered by the quake.
What We've Done
In response to the disaster, CRASH Japan has been working to aid survivors in the Tohoku area, mobilizing volunteers from around the globe, meeting with pastors throughout Japan, and partnering with various churches and organizations to bring hope and healing to Tohoku.
volunteers have worked through CRASH
countries have supported Tohoku through CRASH
