Our hearts go out to all of the survivors who continue to make the best out of the difficult situation they were thrust into. We will continue to search for ways to help those who were impacted so they can regain some sense of normalcy
Irvine, California (PRWEB) March 23, 2012
Interush, Inc., a leading international IT company with a large presence in Asia, was recognized once again by the American Red Cross for being a significant supporter of the organization, when Interush received a detailed one-year anniversary report commemorating the 2011 Japan Earthquakes and Pacific Tsunami and the relief efforts made since then.
In the report, American Red Cross thanked organizations, including Interush, for making significant contributions that enabled them to offer crucial relief and recovery efforts for disaster survivors in Japan the past year, in partnership with the Japanese Red Cross.
Gail McGovern, the President and CEO of the American Red Cross organization shared in her message, “One year after the disaster, the American Red Cross has raised $312 million, and the vast majority of that money has already been used in Japan for relief and recovery operations.”
According to the report, as of February 2012, the Japanese Red Cross has mobilized approximately 900 medical teams to treat more than 87,000 patients, provided emotional support to nearly 14,000 people and supplied 316,000 people with basic household appliances.
Martin Matthews, Interush Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our hearts go out to all of the survivors who continue to make the best out of the difficult situation they were thrust into. We will continue to search for ways to help those who were impacted so they can regain some sense of normalcy.”
Interush plans on continuing to support the American Red Cross by promoting donation in English, Japanese, and Chinese and assisting the “With you Japan” organization, founded by international Race Driver, Takuma Sato, to provide long-term care to thousands of children in Japan.
