Super Typhoon Hagibis slammed into Japan on Saturday, 12 October, with heavy rain causing landslides and dozens of rivers to burst their banks. As of 17 October, the death toll has risen to 77, 186 injured and 14 still missing and the figure is expected to continue rising. More than 37,000 households are still without power, and 133,000 homes have no water.

Together with a local NGO, Mercy Relief will be conducting emergency hot meal distributions to the affected communities of Miyagi & Fukushima and we call for an urgent appeal for donations to reach our initial crowdfunding goal of $30,000 to bring the much needed aid to the affected communities.

Disasters show no mercy but you can. Donate now.

*Donations for foreign purposes are NOT eligible for tax-deductions.
