IR monitoring situation: Pacific Rim tsunami

A massive 8.9-magnitude earthquake has struck off the coast of Japan, and an ensuing tsunami is sweeping the north-east of the country.

It is feared that the tsunami will continue to advance upon a wider region stretching as wide as Indonesia in the west, through to South America in the east.

Islamic Relief, which has several offices in the region – including China, Indonesia and Malaysia - is monitoring the developing situation closely, and determining where we could potentially offer humanitarian assistance.
