|International Medical Corps
An International Medical Corps emergency response team is on the ground in Japan and is coordinating with local officials to support response efforts and fill critical gaps. The team is assessing post disaster conditions and prepping critical supplies for delivery to the earthquake zone. They will focus their efforts on earthquake and tsunami affected communities that have not yet been reached.
