>> The Salvation Army’s Japan Territory is sending a team to Sendai immediately to begin providing the basic necessities and undertaking a needs assessment to determine what services are required.

>> Stranded communters were served meals and beverages at The Salvation Army Territorial Headquarters building in Tokyo.
