Help Japan

Last March 11, 2011, an 8.9 earthquake hit near the east coast of Honshu, Japan. The strong quake also caused tsunamis that caused more damage to residential areas, farms and vital infrastructures like the Sendai Airport and the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant. Thousands have been confirmed dead, and thousands more are missing.
