On 11 of March 2011, a 9.0 earthquake has stroke Japan without warning. 20-foot tsunami swallow all the nearby houses without mercy. More than 10,000 human life were lost during this calamitous event. 400,000 Japanese are homeless and hopeless. Houses are razed to the ground, lands are cracked, hearts are ripped apart.
It is a catastrophe that not only that natural disaster has caused chaos and havoc in Japan, the worst is the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station nuclear leak into atmosphere that will cause long-term side effects. What is more, the blackout has made the rescue job tougher than before.
Jaben crews has been depressed by the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan. We would like to express our earnest condolences to all of the fellow Japanese who had suffered and lost their loved ones. During this time of crisis, Jaben crews would also like to offer hopes to Japanese and by the help of all Jabenites! We have negotiated with our Korean supplier Hippo should we do something to help our fellow Japanese friend, they actually offered quite generously to do a fund-raising campaign, and with the contribution of all of us, we shall start this campaign a successful one! I know our contribution is minimal, but every bits of help is what they need from us!
