Japan Chapter

Konnichiwa (hello!) from Japan. We are a small island country with a BIG heart for helping our neighbors here and in the world. Japan has a history of natural disasters including earthquakes, landslides, and tsunamis along with a sad history of war. Although the land and people have been scarred by tragedy, they have also shown the resiliency and hard-working nature that truly defines Japan as a nation. Even as we recover from the 2011 tsunami and nuclear disaster in Northeastern Japan, we continue to turn our eyes to others whom we can help. If you would like to join us in bringing the truly incredible Japanese volunteer-spirit to help others who need us, why don't you join one of our Japan teams of volunteers!
