Japan and the 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami

back to news

We all remember the powerful earthquake and tsunami that ravaged Japans northeast one year ago.


After many month of tireless rebuilding, these pictures reveal the amazing progress made since those tragic events which proved to be the costliest natural disaster in human history. Without foreign aid, much of this would not have been possible.

Despite this amazing progress, nearly 350 000 people remain displaced from their homes, with many living in cramped temporary housing. Some are jobless, many are still without hope. It will take many years before all tracks of the devastation will have been removed.


Foreign aid is still urgently needed to help to rebuild Japan's north. Donations can made to
