The 2018 Typhoon 21 and Hokkaido Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund
Typhoon 21, Jebi, swept through western Japan on September 4 the strongest tropical cyclone to come ashore in 25 years, causing widespread power outages and flooding resulting massive damage to the areas’ residences and infrastructure.
Two days later, an earthquake magnitude of 6.6 struck in southern Hokkaido. The earthquake disrupted electrical service throughout Hokkaido, leaving millions of residents without power. About 40 people were confirmed dead and around 640 people were injured (as of 9/9/18).
The JCCC Foundation has launched a disaster relief campaign to support the victims on behalf of the Chicago-based Japanese community.
We would like to ask you to please consider making donations to assist the people who suffered from these disasters in rebuilding their lives.
