About : Benefit Show for the relief efforts going on in Japan after a 9.0 Magnitude Earthquake hit 81miles off the coast of Japan on March 11th.
The earthquake triggered fires and caused severe damage to buildings, leaving five million households without electricity and 1 million without water. Early assessments indicate that more than 2,500 houses have collapsed completely, with 2,500 more damaged.
In the first 24 hours, the Japanese Red Cross dispatched 62 response teams. These medical relief teams â€“ made up of about 400 doctors, nurses and support staff â€“ are already providing assistance in affected areas through mobile medical clinics, as well as assessing the damage and needs of the communities affected.
More than 300,000 people who were evacuated before the tsunami struck have been housed in temporary centers set up in schools and public buildings where the Red Cross has distributed upwards of 30,000 blankets.
