The reports from Japan have been heart-rending and horrendous. I suspect the numbers of casualties are seriously underestimated in the areas such as Sendai hardest hit by the tsunami, and there is damage all over the northeastern coast of the country. I saw earlier that the 1995 Kobe earthquake was the most expensive natural disaster in history, costing $100 billion. There’s a good chance this one will be even bigger. So far, I’ve come across three agencies that are already moving to help and have links to donate to their efforts. They are:

Red Cross

World Vision

Church World Service

PCUSA General Assembly Mission Council

I’ll update this list as others become available. Pray for Japan, and give as you can.
