Emergency Support for JAPAN EARTHQUAKE and TSUNAMI
On March 11, 2011, 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck the Pacific coast of Tohoku, JAPAN.
We are currently preparing to deploy simple partitions for evacuees taking shelter at gymnasiums in the Tohoku region.
From now on, for people taking shelter in these sites, it is necessary to avoid distress from the lack of privacy and high density.
We ask for your support of this important disaster relief endeavor.
