Donations to the Japan Earthquake Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund will exclusively be used to help provide disaster relief and support for Japanese children. In addition to immediate relief, this fund will help support long-term recovery plans to restore education and child care in Japanese communities ravaged by the disasters. (Save the Children)

Back in March, Save the Children set up "child-friendly spaces" at an evacuation center in Ishinomaki where the children can play in safety. CNN can tell you more.

Tremendous support efforts have been pouring into Japan from all over the world.  However, we must remember that the recovery process will be a slow and long-term endeavor.  We ask you once again to continue to stand with Japan as the survivors face the long road to recovery.
