FROM THE SITE 3/11:

FH responding
Food for the Hungry is responding in collaboration with Japan International Food for the Hungry (JIFH). JIFH staff is assessing the most urgent needs in Sendai. Initial response includes distribution of canned bread, rice and water. Sendai is a coastal city in northeastern Miyagi that suffered catastrophic damage following the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that struck Japan’s northeastern area on Friday.

The head of the JIFH assessment team, Hirohisa Seike, expressed his initial reaction, “Be amazed at the size of the tremendous destructive power of the tsunami.”

An FH partner on the ground relayed the gratitude of a local pastor searching for 60 church members out of 210 still unaccounted for. “When he heard that so many foreigners are coming to help, he could not help but cry. Thank you. That was followed by a simple request, “Please pray as we go.”

From the InterAction site - 2010 Pakistan Floods

FH is working through a local partner, Interfaith League Against Poverty (I-LAP), who is responding in Nowshara and Charsaada Districts through the distribution of food, NFIs, tents and hygiene kits for 8,000 families.

------------------------------------------

Since 1971, Food for the Hungry has boldly served and spoken out for the poor, sending courageous men and women to help communities, by the power and grace of God, achieve sustainable, lasting transformation. Food for the Hungry is more than a relief and development organization. We are a tested, trusted and innovative partner who respectively walks with the poor in more than 26 countries worldwide while intentionally reflecting the love of Jesus.

Food for the Hungry goes to the hard places to bring hope to many who face seemingly hopeless circumstances. "God calls us particularly to those places of poverty that are hurting and often unstable," says Food for the Hungry President Benjamin K. Homan.
