Last Post: JERF Final Report

Since the tragic earthquake on 12th March 2011, the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund has been active for over one month, and finished its fundraising campaign on 15th April 2011. During this period, 39 universities and communities joined the JERF and our fund has totaled £78,334.77.

 

We greatly appreciate the generosity and cooperation of those who have supported us, as well as the dedication and leadership of the JERF member schools and communities.

 

All donations received were converted into JPY, and have been forwarded to the Japanese Red Cross Society (Please see the followings).

The Japanese Red Cross Society will transfer the funds to the Distribution Committee, which has been formed around the local governments of the disaster-affected prefectures. These funds will be distributed directly amongst the affected populations in these prefectures.

 

Three months later, the relief effort in Japan still continues. The tsunami literally wiped out the coastal areas. More than ten thousand people are still living at evacuation centers without privacy and thousands of people have evacuated because of radiation.

 

Although our fundraising campaign has ended, the reconstruction of the affected region will take years.  We hope that this charity drive has encouraged people to take further actions to support the victims. And we hope that the victims will return to normal life as early as possible.

 

Once again, thank you very much for your support and dedication to helping those in need in Japan.


Kind regards,

 

Japan Earthquake Relief Fund committee

JERF Preliminary Report

We would like to thank you all for your cooperation and support for the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund (JERF).

 

Since the great earthquake on 11th March 2011, we have raised funds for over one month, and finished on 15th April 2011. During this period, 39 universities and communities joined the JERF and over GBP 70,000 are expected to be donated to the JERF.


This success has mainly been brought about by your leadership as well as the courtesy of those who donated and cooperated.

 

Now, the JERF committee members are counting the money donated, and will notify the final result as soon as possible. We will also let you know when we complete the money transfer to The Japanese Red Cross Society.

 

Please note that it will take a couple of months for The Japanese Red Cross Society to issue receipts for its practical reasons.

 

Again, thank you all for your cooperation and support for the JERF.

 

Kind regards,

 

Japan Earthquake Relief Fund committee

Japan Earthquake Relief Fund Site Open!!

As you are all aware, an earthquake measuring magnitude 9.0 hit Japan on 11 March, 2011. Reports suggest that over 4800 people have died or are missing, although it is feared the total number of dead could be far higher (as of 14/03/2011).
 
A group of Japanese students from several UK colleges and associations have launched a fund-raising initiative to support The Japanese Red Cross Society in assisting the earthquake victims.
 
Your donation will help disaster victims rebuild their lives and their communities. Any amount, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
 
Please join the recovery effort by clicking here.

 

*Fund-raising is supported by the payment platform of London Business School Japan Club.

 

Thanking you in advance.

 

 

Best regards,
