Japan Relief

March 13, 2011 by Lain

After Japan was hit Friday with an earthquake, then a tsunami, and now nuclear reactor explosions, the third richest country in the world was forced to send out an urgent international appeal for basic necessities to help prevent the death toll from rising.

An estimated 2.6 million homes are without electricity, and up to 1.4 million people are without water.

We all want to help, but, who should we give to?

According to Peter Dybing, First Officer of the Covenant of the Goddess, in an interview with Star Foster of Patheos.com, most large relief organizations still haven’t spent funds received over a year after Haiti was struck with disaster.

“Many of the large NGO’s that collected tens of millions for Haiti relief have yet to spend but a fraction of what they collected more than a year later.  Both myself and other members of the community are attempting to establish ties with small organizations providing services in Japan.  Hopefully our community will be able to identify groups who will directly serve the affected communities as they receive funding.”

He suggests giving to ‘Doctors without Borders’,

“My primary suggestion for donations is ‘Doctors without Boarders. This organization now has two teams on the ground in Japan setting up medical treatment centers.”…

“I am recommending them due to their level of accomplishment in Haiti saving lives. Additionally, when this organization raised enough funds for its Haiti response it stopped accepting donations.”

Mr. Dybing has set up a Pagan Community donation page, and is asking you to match his $54.00 donation.
