Disaster Update: Earthquake and Tsunami

Matthew 25: Ministries has begun sending aid to Japan.

50,000 meals from our Prasco Food Processing Center were sent by air with planned arrival in Tokyo before the end of the week. An additional truckload of aid left our Blue Ash facility today, which includes 200,000 servings of food from the Food Processing Center, as well as water and blankets. Matthew 25 will continue sending aid for months to come as long as our partners request it.

Matthew 25: Ministries’ Vice-president and Disaster Relief Coordinator Tim Mettey commented, “This is a long term effort for us. People often think that if it’s out of the news, things are back to normal. But our experience tells us that disasters of this magnitude, however industrialized or wealthy the country is, will need our help for some time to come.”
