2024 Noto Peninsula Earthquake Information

On behalf of the Japan America Society of Indiana, and in the spirit of kizuna (the enduring bonds of friendship) between the peoples of Indiana and Japan, we continue to keep at the top of our minds and hearts the people of the Noto Peninsula, and Ishikawa, Toyama, and Niigata Prefectures, which were struck by the 7.6 magnitude Noto Peninsula Earthquake on New Year’s Day, as well as by subsequent earthquakes. It is difficult to comprehend the loss of lives, homes, and infrastructure, with thousands injured, evacuated, and staying in shelters. In support of those in the devasted areas of Japan, and following with the requests of JASI members, JASI has launched a disaster relief campaign to support the recovery and relief efforts in Japan.

We ask you to consider donating to assist the people of these areas in rebuilding their lives. 100% of the funds raised will go to direct relief, recovery, and humanitarian aid efforts in Japan.

The Japan-America Society of Indiana is a 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. Tax ID #35-1747168
