International Volunteers for Earthquake Relief


The devastation of the earthquake and the tsunami in Japan is still very apparent in all of the affected areas of Tohoku. Though much hard work is being done around the clock there is still months ahead to rebuild lives that took generations to build.

Many ex pats would like to actively help but feel unsure where to start. We’d like you to take this opportunity to network with the international community in Tokyo to find ways to help.

Following the success of the first International community Earthquake Relief event, Peace Boat will hold another event on Sunday the 24th April from 7pm to 9pm.

  • Recent photos and an account of the current state of Ishinomaki

  • A follow-up on ideas created at the previous event for fundraising in Japan and abroad.
