The first emergency airlift of medical supplies from AmeriCares has arrived in Japan. The more than 17 tons of critical aid is being received by Tohoku University Hospital in Sendai to support health care efforts in the devastated region.AmeriCares is a nonprofit disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization which provides immediate response to emergency medical needs – and supports long-term humanitarian assistance programs – for all people around the world, irrespective of race, creed or political persuasion. AmeriCares has developed partnerships here in the U.S. and around the world that ensure that for every dollar you donate to AmeriCares, they can deliver $35 in lifesaving medicines, medical supplies and humanitarian aid to the people who need it the most.
From now until June, OCLI is supporting AmeriCares and their continuing relief efforts for those affected by the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. You can help too, make a $50 donation to AmeriCares and we will match the donation and give you $500 off a bilateral LASIK procedure.
