An 9.0-magnitude earthquake hit off the east coast of Japan on March 11th. The quake which was one of the largest in recorded history triggered a 23-foot tsunami that battered Japan’s coast, killing hundreds and sweeping away cars, homes, buildings, and boats, causing many injuries, fires.

A tsumani triggered by a powerful earthquake made its way to sweep part of Sendai airport in northern Japan on the same day.

There are thousands of dead and injured people in Japan right now. So now it’s time for us to share their grief and to help them.

Turkish American Society of Chicago (TASC), a fellow member of the Turkish American Federation of Midwest, is leading a relief campaign for the victims of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
