Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded on March 11. The magnitude-9.0 quake spawned a deadly tsunami that slammed into the nation's east coast, leaving a huge swath of devastation in its wake. Thousands of people are dead and many more are still missing or injured.

Besonders nötig sei der Aufbau einer Infrastruktur, damit obdachlos gewordene Menschen vorübergehend eine Unterkunft finden. Das Deutsche Rote Kreuz (DRK) rief ebenfalls zu Spenden auf. Mit dem Geld soll das Japanische Rote Kreuz unterstützt werden, das seit Tagen ununterbrochen im Einsatz ist. In 86 Teams seien 600 Ärzte, Sanitäter und Pfleger unterwegs. Regelmäßig würden die erschöpften Einsatzkräfte, die alte, kranke und verletzte Menschen in Notunterkünften und Zelten betreuen, ersetzt. Hier können Sie für das DRK spenden:
