Original post (Friday 11th March, 9.30am):
With the full repercussions of the earthquake, additional aftershocks and the resulting tsunami still unfolding, we are liaising with the Disasters Emergency Committee and other aid agencies operating in the region.
At this stage, with the scale of the humanitarian impact still unknown, we continue to watch, wait and pray for the hundreds and thousands of lives that will inevitably be affected by these events.
As more information becomes available we will update this page with additional details, including any funds opened for those wishing to give to support any emergency responses being made by our recipients working in the affected regions.

The staff and trustees of Stewardship offer our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathy for the people of Japan at this time.
