Islamic Relief USA was proud to support efforts of the Islamic Relief family in Japan in 2011, to aid earthquake and tsunami survivors. The quake was the biggest in the island nation’s recorded history, with a magnitude of 9.0. It created a tsunami that flooded cities, stranded over 300,000 families, and wreaked havoc on the country’s infrastructure.
IRUSA’s emergency appeal drew aid from generous donors to provide emergency supplies to quake survivors such as food, water, electricity, blankets, and more.
