Earthquake

Letter to Friends in Japan

AFSC has long friendships with many in Japan and our thoughts are with them and their communities as the disaster continues to unfold.

AFSC's Work In Haiti, One Year Later.

On January 12, 2010, a disastrous earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale struck Haiti, killing tens of thousands and leaving untold numbers wounded, homeless, and without basic needs. AFSC immediately provided funds to partners on the ground for medical assistance, cooking kits, materials for shelters, and meals served in community kitchens.
