First of all, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for showing your heartfelt concerns and condolences in the extremely difficult time.
We, the Japanese Federation of the Deaf, have already launched the “Headquarters for Disaster Relief for deaf people in the Great East Japan Earthquake”. We are doing our utmost to gather information about deaf victims and support of them, and providing it on our main website.
We have created an English page with information on the earthquake, including details on where to send donations:
Earthquake Information in English: http://www.jfd.or.jp/en/quake2011
We cordially ask you to refrain from directly contacting the disaster-stricken area about donations and volunteering.
Thank you for understanding.
