Following the earthquakes and tsunamis in Southeast Asia, the earthquake in Haiti, and the attacks on 9/11, the members of Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) responded with an amazing demonstration of support and provided critical supplies for emergency disaster relief.
OIA, working with AmeriCares, is once again calling on members to dig deep to support those areas devastated by earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
At this time, the Japanese government is not requesting external product and medical support. However, if you have local manufacturing facilities or affiliates in Japan and are interested in donating products in-country, AmeriCares can explore possibilities for matching what you have available with the current product needs, which include:
- Hygiene products
- Heating pads
Due to the amazing response from the nation, AmeriCares is having trouble replying to everyone in a timely manner, but they will respond. OIA will continue to publish updated needs throughout the relief effort.
