Massive earthquake and tsunami devastates Japan
(MIAMI, FL, March 11, 2011) --- AMER, American Muslims for Emergency & Relief has announced an urgent need for financial support to assist the Earthquake victims in Japan.
The quake, which shut down airports and trains in Tokyo, leaving millions of commuters stranded, killed close to 1,000 and left more than 2,500 missing, according to the National Police Agency. It was the world's strongest earthquake since a December 2004 temblor in Indonesia that left about 220,000 people dead or missing in 12 countries around the Indian Ocean.
Dear Muslims: It is our obligation as American Muslims to assist the people of Japan!
Together we can bring relief to the people of Japan.
