Crash Japan - Operation Safe

On 20 August 2014, Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan was struck by a series of landslides following torrential rain in which a month's worth fell in a single day.  The city of Hiroshima’s Asakita-ku was the hardest-hit ward.  Seventy-three people are reported dead (as of September 10) along with one missing.  CRASH Japan has organized Christian volunteers to work alongside local churches to help those in need. Hundreds of volunteers are helping dig out homes, clean-out mud, recover belongings and provide emotional and spiritual care. Your financial help will make a huge difference!

All donors will receive a letter of acknowledgment and thanks from GLINTS in behalf of CRASH Japan/OperationSafe International, including an IRS tax-deductible receipt for donations originating from the U.S.

After a disaster, some perform rescue operations, others open shelters, deliver food, water and relief supplies, as well as clear rubble, mud and help rebuild. CRASH Japan volunteers have assisted in such noble tasks, but one focus has become our international signature.  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.

OperationSAFE is CRASH Japan’s child trauma intervention ministry.  Child trauma left untreated increases the risk for a host of social, neuropsychiatric and other medical problems including PTSD, school failure, risky behavior and even heart disease.  CRASH Japan has taught the OperationSAFE child trauma intervention to local communities after disasters in China, Tibet, Haiti, Indonesia, Philippines and Japan.  Trained emotional first-aid workers have helped thousands of children struggling in the aftermath of trauma.

Your gift of $30 will send one child to an OperationSAFE camp in his/her locale.  Please donate generously today to impact whole communities for the future.

CRASH Japan with its subsidiary OperationSAFE International is raising US$36,000 to provide emotional care for children traumatized by the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that struck the Yunnan province of China on August 3rd. OperationSAFE camps help kids recover from trauma through art, play, story and friendship.   Click here to give towards this latest project and type OperationSAFE China in the Comments section.

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.

2700+

volunteers have worked through CRASH

80+

countries have supported Tohoku through CRASH

What You Can Do

Despite all of the amazing things God has done through CRASH over the past year, there is still much work to be done. The people of Tohoku still need help, and your support is still needed to make that happen. When you donate, if you want to designate your donation to a specific fund, please indicate that fund by writing it in the Comments section on the following page.
