JEN’s Past Experiences With Earthquake Assistance

Just now, we received a message from the three staff dispatched to northern Japan.
They will soon start tweeting through JEN’s account, live and direct from the field. For English tweets, follow us at NGO_JEN_e .

Today, we would like to share with you our past experiences of assisting various earthquakes (and tsunamis) around the world.
