What Can I do?
I spent a year teaching English in Iwate Prefecture (Miyako) in the Tohoku Region- (northern Japan)and ever since the earthquake, I have been asking myself what can I do to help the people of Iwate and in particular those in the coastal towns severely hit by the tsunami. Iwate Prefecture has set up a Disaster Relief Fund for the citizens affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Below is the bank information if you want to make a donation directly to Iwate.
