Dear Friends:

Your kind words and prayers were conveyed to our colleagues at the Arigatou International in Japan in the aftermath of the devastating earthquake, tsunami and consequent nuclear crisis.

The latest news reports that at least 4,200 lives were lost and more than 8,100 people are still missing.  Over 440,000 people are displaced and are staying in the evacuation center with limited access to food, water and heat.

The 2010 World Day of Prayer and Action for Children unfolded with global celebrations last month as tens of thousands of people heard messages from their religious leaders urging the care, protection and well-being of children.
