Hundreds of thousands of lives in Japan were changed forever by the earthquake, tsunami (soo-NAH-mee) and nuclear radiation leak that centered off the northeast coast of Japan. Many Japanese students returned back to school in April, but were dealing with the loss of family members, teachers and classmates. Hundreds of schools were still being used as shelters.
Yuka Chiba is a 13-year-old girl in Kesennuma, Japan. “I want to go back to a normal life. Here you have to be careful all the time, you can’t really relax,” she told the Associated Press on her first day back at school.
In the United States, many kids are showing support for kids in Japan who have been affected by the disaster. On Facebook, groups such as “Kids Care for Kids-Hope for Japan” and “Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund” are sites where kids can connect with kids in Japan and help send money and supplies to people in need.
Earthquake: On March 11, a 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck 81 miles off the coast of Japan, triggering a massive tsunami and hundreds of aftershocks.
Lives Lost: As of April 25, over 14,000 people were confirmed dead. Almost 12,000 more people were missing.
Emergency Shelters: In late April, more than 130,000 people were still living in temporary shelters.
