Washington, DC (Vocus/PRWEB) March 11, 2011
On Friday an 8.9-magnitude earthquake struck Japan causing a devastating tsunami to hit the northeast coast of Japan. Police officers from Japan report that at least 60 people have been killed and 56 are missing in the wake of the tsunami, which bulldozed homes, cars, boats, and businesses before the massive wave retreated. Associated Press reports that the earthquake prompted the US National Weather Service to issue a Tsunami Alert for over 50 countries including all the Pacific, Hawaii, the Philippines, Indonesia, and the West Coast on the US mainland. Works of Life International Ministries issues a statement of emergency pledging to provide relief to those affected in the US, Japan, and elsewhere.
Works of Life is a non-profit, faith-based, non-denominational charitable organization in operation for over a decade and has received charitable donations from thousands of donors across the US. CEO of the same organization Vincent Everett heard of the earthquake and tsunami and promptly issued a written statement promising to refocus the generating power of Works of Life to provide help to those affected in the US, Japan, and other areas in danger of being struck by the tsunami, which was triggered by more than 20 aftershocks following one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded in Japan. Included in the Tsunami warning are Hawaii, Central American countries El Salvador and Guatemala, Indonesia, Russia, the Philippines, New Zealand among many more.
Everett writes: "This is a state of emergency. Works of Life, including all of its staff members and affiliate charitable networks, would like to express our most sincere condolences to the families of those who have died in this tragic event. As of Friday, aftershocks continue to threaten the security of several US cities in Hawaii and along the west coast. We are fully prepared and equipped to provide emergency relief to those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan as well as areas near the Pacific. It is our duty as a charitable organization to act under a state of emergency effective immediately. All donations made to Works of Life at this time will be redirected to those who have been struck hardest by the catastrophic earthquake. If you would like to make a donation contact Works of Life International Ministries at (888) 228-7320."
The Works of Life Executive continues, "The US has already sprung into action. Carrier Ronald Reagan is currently on its way to Japan along with other key military assets to lend assistance. These guys are at the first responders in international aid, but they will need help from other US agencies soon. The non-profit sector will play a crucial role in providing the next line of support to people in Japan, Hawaii, and the Pacific, Indonesia, Central America who are in desperate situations. If you have the means, please lend a helping hand in what ever way you can. We are being called to action by one of the worst natural disasters ever to hit Japan."
