Cuban authorities said they were ready to send a team of doctors and rescuers to assist in rescue efforts in earthquake-stricken Japan, Cuba’s AIN news agency reported on Tuesday.
Cuban Ambassador to Japan Jose Fernandez de Cossio also said all Cubans currently in Japan were ready to render any necessary aid.
Ninety-one countries have offed to help Japan overcome the devastation left behind by the tsunami that followed an 8.9 magnitude earthquake, but none is worth more noting than Kenya. The east African country has pledged more than 2,000 long-distance runners to the rescue efforts in Japan.
Japan’s recent devastating earthquake and tsunami has sent much after shocks through Jamaica, especially the music industry. Many Reggae/dancehall artistes that frequent the country are more concerned about the loss of lives rather than the effect it will have on the music Industry. Some reggae artistes describe Japan as the best place that they have ever performed. These interactions between the two countries have formed lifetime friendships.
Brazil’s vast Japanese community began to step up efforts to raise funds for the country’s quake and tsunami victims on Monday (March 14) as many still struggled to receive news from their loved ones. Since the powerful quake hit the island-country on Thursday, many immigrants living in Sao Paulo’s downtown district of Liberdade have changed their routine.
The neighborhood, which is like a slice of Tokyo, is home to many of Brazil’s over 1.5 million Japanese descendants.
