Brother’s Brother Foundation in Cooperation with the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania Responds to Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan
March 11, 2011
Following the March 11, 2011 9.0 magnitude earthquake off the east coast of Japan that generated tsunami destruction on the island of Japan, Brother’s Brother Foundation (BBF), in cooperation with the Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania (JASP) will respond to requested needs of the residents of Japan.
The JASP has been proud to serve the Pittsburgh region for twenty five years. Throughout its history, the JASP has been dedicated to improving international understanding and strengthening the ties between Japan and Western Pennsylvania.”We have always recognized the critical business relationships between Japanese and American companies who employ a large number of people in Western Pennsylvania and who are creating world class products and services. In addition, we are proud to sponsor important cultural and educational outreach activities which help bring diversity and international understanding to our greater Pennsylvania schools and community”, said Stephen Ceurvorst who serves as Chairman of the JASP. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those living in Japan or who have loved ones in the area. The JASP and Brother’s Brother teamed up after the 1995 earthquake disaster in Kobe by supporting an orphanage in order to provide assistance to victims who were least able to help themselves,” said Mr. Ceurvorst.
