Religious Relief Groups Send Teams to Aid Japan; Will Determine What Is Needed for Its Recovery

The Ecumenical News International website reports today (March 23, 2011) that several religious relief organizations are supporting and sending teams to Japan to assess its damage from its recent earthquake and tsunami.

Groups -- such as the World Vision and Baptist World Aid -- have teams in Japan determining what kinds of experts and supplies will be needed in the recovery from the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan on March 11.

A team of Baptist World Aid workers from the U.S., Singapore, and Hungary have arrived in Japan and others are on standby, said Eron Henry, a spokesman for the relief organization Baptist World Alliance.

Henry said, "We have learned the importance of coordinating a response, so that there is not duplication, so there's no overlap and no confusion."
