It's been four years since the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster in northeastern Japan, but the road to recovery continues. For example, over 30% of children in the region suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) according to a Japanese health ministry survey. 
 
At the film screening, you will have an opportunity to donate to the Taylor Anderson Memorial Foundation, benefiting kids and families in Tohoku through a range of education and family support programs. Even better, GlobalGiving will match your donation, doubling its impact!

You will also learn about the work that the Foundation is doing and hear updates on the recovery efforts and ongoing needs in Tohoku.
