"This kind of enormous disaster is overwhelming, even for a well-prepared country like Japan", said Mercy Corps CEO Neal Keny-Guyer. "With Peace Winds' Japanese base and global reach, as well as Mercy Corps' expertise responding to disasters around the world, we are ideally positioned to assist the Japanese people."
The Mercy Corps is already in Japan dispensing aid to tsunami victims. Their priority is to help fill needs for shelter, food and clean water. Mercy Corps and Peace Winds will work together to help families build new homes.
