Earthquake in Japan
(March 15, 2011-)
A massive earthquake of magnitude 9.0 hit Japan on March 11th, causing devastating damages. Severe damages are seen at our branches and member cooperatives in Tohoku (northeastern) area, where the earthquake hit the hardest.

We have received many supporting messages from cooperative friends. We truly appreciate your warm messages. We are so encouraged by your messages and grateful for your concern. We have been introducing the messages in our nationwide member newsletters since the March 25th issue.

We are now supporting our members in affected areas. However, it will take years and tremendous amount of human, material and financial resources to rebuild their lives, and we will truly appreciate your support.
All of your generous donation will be spent on necessary goods/supplies and support for our members in the affected areas.
