Chabad of Japan Relief Operation for Tsunami Survivors
Chabad-Lubavitch centers in Tokyo and Hong Kong have shipped tons of food into one of the Japanese cities hardest hit by last week’s earthquake and tsunami.
The Tokyo-based Chabad-Lubavitch of Japan and the Hong Kong-based Chabad-Lubavitch of Asia have shipped bread, rice, noodles, soups, canned foods, flour and oil to the city of Sendai, chabad.org reported.
The organization also has commissioned a bakery in Sendai to give out free bread. The bakery also will serve as the Jewish response’s command center, Chabad-Lubavitch of Japan director Rabbi Mendy Sudakevich told the website.
Sudakevich said he also has organized 50,000 ready-to-eat food rations to be flown in from the United States.
