Japan Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011

On March 11, 2011, a magnitude-9 earthquake shook north east coast of Japan, unleashing a savage tsunami.

It's been five years after the quake, the number of confirmed death is more than 15,000, and more than 2,500 people are still reported missing, according to Japan National Police Agency.

The unexpected disaster changed so many lives on that day.
In Japan, residents are still recovering from the disaster. At the same time, we are confronted with challenges, such as a question about nuclear power plants operation, and about 170,00 people who lost their homes were still living in temporary housing.

The most important thing is that we are keeping awareness alive of the fact that the story is not over, that the areas affected by the quake will continue to need the help of the world to recover from one of the most devastating natural disasters on record.

I hope, people in the world would spare minutes to think and pray for Japan, today.
