Message of Support to Americans from Japan

AMDA, one of the first recipients of a funding from the JCIE Japan NGO Earthquake Fund, played a key role in responding to the 3/11 disaster in Japan. As one of Japan’s leading humanitarian assistance organizations, they respond to disasters around the region. They have sent the following message to Americans affected by Hurricane Sandy, many of whom were so generous during Japan’s time of need.

I represent AMDA, the Association of Medical Doctors of Asia,… and I was deeply touched by the compassion and support of the American people toward the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake.

We, at AMDA Headquarters in Okayama, Japan, have been closely following the news on Hurricane Sandy which wreaked havoc on the areas along the US East Coast. The damage to the lifelines, transportation systems, communication lines and to all other aspects of people’s lives must be tremendous, even to those resilient American citizens.

The road to full recovery is long and arduous but we are certain that the American people will bounce back stronger than before. As we think and pray for the American people, we renew our commitment to all disaster victims around the world.

We hope that you, your family, and colleagues are all well and safe surviving in the aftermath of the disaster. Please remember that our thoughts and prayers are with you and all our friends in the affected areas.

Sincerely yours,
Tae Namba
Director of President Office & Board Member
