It’s nearly a week ago, and still not finished. The earthquake M8.9, triggered a tsunami which made thousands of people homeless after hitting the east coast of Japan. You don’t want to think of the number of deaths. These days, they still are found. Until Saturday, there even is a huge chance for an aftershock of magnitudes up to 7.
People need help, people need food. In the Netherlands, Japan is considered as ‘sufficiently organised’ to take care of the relief works, the disaster management, and the restoration. At the same time, shops are empty, roads are broken (litterally) and people are prepraring their food using the debris of their homes. They may suffer of injuries, have no place to shelter or have to improvise heavily.
And then we are not talking about the nuclear power station which is evaporating radio-active steam which is blown over the country by the wind.
