CRASH Japan Seeking Laborers and Team Leaders
CRASH Japan is seeking people to do labor work and lead teams to Tokyo and then onto Sendai and other camps around the earthquake and tsunami damaged areas.
The Japanese government is encouraging people to not to go up to Sendai individually. CRASH also encourages people to not go up to the headquarters individually. The problem with individuals going up to the region is people need to work in the disaster areas in teams and people coming and going one by one causes disorganization. So people are urged to create groups or teams.
Teams need to consist of between 5 and 7 people; a few more than 7 is also okay, if that many can be coordinated. People who can fulfill leadership roles are needed immediately and will need to go to the CRASH Tokyo headquarters for orientation and training. Leaders will be in charge of finances, coordinating with churches and need to be able to go for at least a week or longer at a time.
Laborers need to be able to stay for at least 3 days or longer and be available from April 1st onward.
Contact CRASH directly to find a team heading from your area.
