Kyushu disasters and recovery

The Board of Directors on behalf of JALT members want to express our sadness at the recent earthquakes and other resulting disasters in Kyushu and are concerned for the welfare of all those in the affected areas. We hope that our members find appropriate ways of assisting with recovery efforts. One way might be to provide contributions.

While there are many organizations starting to provide relief, one group with a proven track record is Second Harvest Japan. Donations can be made at this link.
