Due to the current Japan Earthquake and Tsunami UNICEF on Campus will donate all proceeds from our “Hot Dog and Green Soda Sale” (March 15, PM- Nat and Liz), #2 Star Craft Tournament (March 20th, PM- Yves Lau), and Dynamis info. session (March 30th, PM- Ryan Lo) to the General Emergency Fund, which will be deployed if Japanese governments asks. More information below.

UNICEF response to the earthquake in Japan:

Our sympathy goes out to those affected by the earthquake in Japan and we are monitoring the situation in Japan and have UNICEF staff on the ground prepared to assist the Government of Japan, if asked.

UNICEF is the leading expert in helping children in emergencies and has prepositions of emergency supplies and staff around the world before disaster strikes. In addition to support in Japan, we are on standby throughout the Pacific region to provide vital supplies and expert staff if the need arises.

UNICEF Japan is offering families advice through its website on how to minimize psychological trauma to children during a crisis such as Japan’s devastating earthquake

UNICEF is not accepting donations for the Japanese earthquake at this time, but Canadians can support our general emergency relief fund by making a donation online at unicef.ca, by phoning 1-800-567-4483 or by texting GIVE to 45678.

UNICEF in emergencies:

UNICEF is the leading expert in helping children in emergencies. Children are the most vulnerable during a disaster and must be at the centre of an emergency response.

When assisting during an emergency, we are dedicated to providing life-saving assistance to children affected by disaster and protecting their rights, no matter how difficult.

Emergencies trigger a cascade of consequences that have long-term effects for children. The incidence of disease, malnutrition, violence and exploitation rises sharply during emergencies.

When responding to an emergency, UNICEF urgently needs help to provide:

* Clean water, sanitation and hygiene
* Child protection for children separated from their families
* Emergency supplies (food, tents, medical supplies, soap and other hygiene supplies)
* Psychosocial support for children
* Emergency education
* Emergency management

UNICEF works in collaboration with local and international partners, (including governments, UN agencies, and civil society) in emergencies.

With our partners, we respond to more than 200 emergencies every year in an average of 90 countries.

UNICEF also works to strengthen a community’s resilience to emergencies. We identify risks and work with national and local authorities to improve preparedness. We advocate to make disaster risk reduction a global priority.

More information about UNICEF’s work in emergencies can be found in our Humanitarian Action for Children 2011 report, Building resilience, at www.unicef.ca

Safe drinking water is often urgently needed during an emergency. The basic UNICEF Family Water Kit ($100) can provide for 10 families. It contains:

* 20 collapsible water containers
* 10 buckets with lids
* 72 bars of soap
* 550 water purification tablets

UNICEF is not accepting donations for the Japanese earthquake at this time, but Canadians can support our general emergency relief fund by making a donation online at unicef.ca, phoning 1-800-567-4483 or by texting GIVE to 45678.
