Members of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S. NGOs working abroad, are responding to the 8.9 magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunami that devastated parts of northern Japan earlier today.
A complete list of organizations responding to the crisis is available on the web at www.interaction.org

Worthington, president of InterAction, “Our community stands ready to help as needed. Our members have quickly mobilized efforts and are communicating with directly with civil society groups in Japan.”
Initial reports indicate that over 1,000 people have lost their lives. Hundreds of thousands of people and perhaps millions more have been affected.
