<Japanese follows English>
We, as “Ishikawan in Seattle” (シアトル石川県人会) are seeking your support to raise funds for those who were severely affected by a large scale earthquake on the New Year’s Day.

On January 1st 2024, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake struck the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. A tsunami warning sounded across the western coasts of Japan, as the tsunami that followed hit the Noto Peninsula soon after. The tsunami damaged at approximately 400 acres in the Noto peninsula. Power and water supplies were cut, communications were disrupted. Since then, more than 1,500 aftershocks have followed the main shock. The quake also caused fires in some cities and it is estimated that hundreds of houses were burnt down.

Thousands have been affected and some of them were forced to evacuated out of their house or city, staying wherever possible for the time beings. The cleaning of debris and reconstructions will yet to be started, leaving a millions to feel uncertain about their future.

This fundraising is to particularly provide financial aids to new or existing college students that are affected by the disaster so that they can focus on their study without worrying about their financials. Please help us keep a light of hope for the region's sustainability in the long term.

President, Ishikawan in Seattle
