The Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami hit Japan on Friday, March 11, 2011, leading to the largest Japanese Red Cross disaster response in the country in its history.

Immediately after the earthquake, the Japanese Red Cross launched relief operations such as distributing relief supplies, deploying medical teams from 92 Red Cross hospitals, preparing hot meals at evacuation centres, and other activities to help people affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

In addition to the disaster response in the emergency phase, the Japanese Red Cross has been conducting reconstruction projects with the support from 100 sister societies and the State of Kuwait.
