Portland-based Mercy Corps is assisting a Japan-based aid organization “Peace Winds” to provide tsunami and earthquake relief. Joy Portella with Mercy Corps says they will send some of their aid workers to help Peace Winds. They are also offering peace winds educational materials from their "Comfort for Kids" program.
"Comfort for Kids" helps parents and guardians address trauma. Mercy Corps is also filtering cash donations they receive to Peace Winds, which they say is a trusted relief organization they have worked with for years.
