H3: How Can You Help Deaf Japanese People Affected By Quake?(8:10)
To support persons with disabilities affected by the Tohoku-Kanto Great Earthquake on March 11, 2011, DPI-Japan, JIL, Yumekaze Foundation and other Japanese disability organizations established the Relief Headquarters for Persons with Disabilities of Tohoku-Kanto Great Earthquake.
They have now opened a blog site in English.
There is a link on this website for people to provide support: http://dpi.cocolog-nifty.com/
You can find more information on the website in MS Word and PDF format. You will also find a message from Shoji Nakanishi, the Director.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for showing your kindly concerns and condolences in the extremely difficult time.
We continue gathering information about deaf people and support for them.
We are providing the information on our website. Please accept our apology for the information being currently only written in Japanese.
We will put information about donation on our website in English later.
We would deeply appreciate your patience and persistence.
We cordially ask you to refrain from contacting directly to the disaster-stricken area about donation and volunteer.
Thank you for understanding.
