Japan recently experienced what is considered the worst weather disaster the country has faced in 36 years. The floods and landslides in western Japan in July have led to severe damage, most notably in the Ehime, Hiroshima and Okayama Prefectures. To date, hundreds of people have lost their lives, many have suffered damages to their homes and many more are left without water.
The Center is partnering with the U.S.-Japan Council (USJC) in a fundraising effort to support to victims of the devastating rain and flooding in Japan. USJC, the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii and the Japanese American Citizens League have established the Japan Flood Friendship Fund (JFFF) to aid those who are affected. 100% of the contributions will go to relief efforts through our network of nonprofit organizations that are working on the ground.
Please know that a donation of any amount will be appreciated and your gesture of support will give hope to the survivors of the Japan flood. Please consider donating through the form on the USJC website.
