The people of Japan need world assistance. Even though they are a developed country, the fact that they sustained a triple whammy of 9.0 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear reactor problems has touched many people around the world.

The people of Japan have recently found that the radiation from the Fukushima reactors have contaminated local produce and milk, particularly spinach.

When sending money to organizations, be careful to send it to well-established organizations. There are scammers out there who want your money. So make sure you contribute to an organization you can trust like the Red Cross.
