Tragedy strikes Japan


On March 11, 2011 Japan was struck by a massive earthquake. Causing damage, fires, blackouts, and tsunamis. Many lives have been lost due to this unfortunate event. The earthquake caused two explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant. Leading to leakage of radioactive material. It is said that about 190 people have been exposed to radiation. Some but not all, may be exposed to a possibility of cancer. This all depends on the type of radioactive material that escaped. We give our heartfelt prayers and condolences to the people of Japan.

Although our main mission lies in Haiti, we know the aftereffects that can shock a nation after an earthquake and it is not the physical aftershocks but the emotional ones. A tragedy like so, exposes the fragility of mankind. What happens when government and politics are no longer relevant because food and resources are scarce? It is amazing to see the response from the international community but we must escape politics and bureaucracy in order to create real change. Clean up and restructuring is going to take several years, we must not waver in our support for a nation struck by such a damaging tragedy. Earthquakes are both physically and mentally traumatic and in this time we support the people of Japan effected by this tragedy, the people abroad effected by this tragedy and the people at home.

It is in these times of tragedy that notions of “otherness” become irrelevant. We are no longer divided by notions of the nation-state and political boarder lines. We need to create a bridge of commonality based on the label of humanity. We are all a part of the human race and we must help our people out of these tough time. We must stay away from blaming and pointing fingers. Let us realize that humans are suffering and we must do all we can to help and ease this suffering.

The goal of our organization is to ease this human suffering through awareness and knowledge. We understand the process of dealing with the aftereffects of an earthquake because we are relentless on our mission. Although the topic of Haiti may have escaped the minds of many we still continue our mission to never forget the the tragic earthquake that struck Haiti back in January 2010. Our goal is to help women and children of Haiti, by raising money with every dress that is made and sold.
