Acceptance of Relief Money through Japan's Overseas Missions in Response to Tohoku - Pacific Ocean Earthquake

March 16, 2011

  1. We would like to inform that Japan will now be accepting relief money, as long as conditions permit, from foreign governments, private organizations, individuals and others, through its overseas missions as well, in addition to the Red Cross, in response to the request from people around the world. Japan's overseas missions have so far asked them to send relief money to the Red Cross Society in their respective country instead.

  2. Relief money accepted at the overseas missions will then be sent to Japanese Red Cross Society. Please contact the Japanese overseas mission in your country concerning the specific procedures to send relief money.
