APP member institution, The Sasaskawa Peace Foundation USA, initiated on Friday, March 25th, an earthquake and tsunami relief fund. It enables Americans to contribute to its sister organization The Nippon Foundation's effort to rebuild Japan's communities.

Unlike many relief organizations, The Nippon Foundation has nearly 50 years of initiating social welfare projects and disaster assistance in Japan with an extensive, established network of civil society organizations. The focus of The Nippon Foundation's work will be on post-relief needs to aid children, the elderly, the disabled, and the dispossessed.
