Japanese Government Still Accepting Kumamoto Relief Fund

The Japanese government has recently decided to extend the donation collection period of the Kumamoto relief fund to March 31, 2017 to support those who were affected by the mega earthquakes that hit in the Kumamoto Region in April. The Japanese government has been accepting relief money from foreign governments, foreign individuals, companies and
Japanese residents abroad.

The donations are collected at the Consulate-General of Japan in Seattle with a check and completed donation form. Those who are interested in donating by mail can send to General Affairs Section (Attention: Kumamoto), Consulate-General of Japan in Seattle, 601 Union Street, Suite 500, Seattle, WA 98101.

No cash donations will be accepted, and the consulate will not be responsible for lost mail.

The Donation Form can be downloaded at <http://www.seattle. us.emb-japan.go.jp/files/000152040. pdf>.

More information can be found through (206) 682-9107 or <www.seattle. us.emb-japan.go.jp>.
