from AFH :: please consider donating today ::
The tragedy that has unfolded in Japan is unprecedented. We are all moved by the images and stories of those affected. Here at Architecture for Humanity we've have received an outpouring of emails, calls and donations from concerned folks who want to help. We thought we would send you an update letting you know how we are responding.
We are in contact with design professionals and Architecture for Humanity volunteers in Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo. We are working with them to identify needs and next steps in the short- and long-term. We will continue to update you on the needs as we work to develop partnerships and projects.
If you would like to aid this effort, please consider donating. If you have already made a donation, thank you. In the near term, these funds will support local Japanese professionals as they provide damage assessments during the emergency and transitional phase. Further down the road, funds will go toward aiding local agencies in providing housing and the reconstruction of social and cultural infrastructure, such as schools, clinics and cultural centers.
You can also organize a fundraiser in your community. Contact us to find out how.
Please note: at the moment we will not be sending sponsored volunteers to Japan but will focus our efforts on supporting local professionals. However, if you're interested in volunteering, there are plenty of opportunities at our headquarters in San Francisco and with our chapters.
On behalf of all those affected and our colleagues in Japan, thank you for your support.
