As probably all of you have read in the news during the last weeks, Japan has suffered from a disastrous earthquake. It was followed by up to 10 meter high tsunami waves that caused extensive damage. Hundreds of thousands of people are looking for shelter.
SAVE THE CHILDREN is estimating that at least 100,000 children have been affected by the disasters. They lost their homes and many their relatives. Now they urgently need psychological aid and a safe place where they can play, learn and work on their trauma.
Save the Children is now working nonstop in the disaster zone to assess children’s needs and initiate child protection programs. We are also closely monitoring the situation of the nuclear plants and are developing a contingency plan if the situation worsens.
The first of a planned network of Child-Friendly Spaces in evacuation centers was opened on March 16 in Sendai. Supervised by Save the Children staff, it contains toys and games for children ages 5-12.
InnoGames would be very grateful for your support as the help is needed urgently.
