Phil Red Cross launches an SMS Donation Campaign for Japan quake victims

Following the unprecedented 8.9 magnitude quake that shook Japan Friday afternoon causing extensive damages to lives and properties, the Philippine Red Cross launched a fund-drive through SMS Donation in support of the Japanese Red Cross Society's (JRCS) response to the emergency situation.

JRCS is an active supporter of PRC in times of disasters and other emergencies. It is also a partner in its several programs, including the Primary Health Care Project.

PRC Chairman Richard J. Gordon said, "It's our turn to give back."

"Being a third world country shouldn't hinder us from helping our neighboring country, which is in dire need of assistance," Gordon added.

He enjoins every Filipino to do their share and help the people of Japan.

The PRC has earlier alerted its disaster action teams for immediate deployment to Japan in case the need arises.

PRC is a member of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement that is now working together to help alleviate the plight of the quake victims.
