Devex Networking Event to Support Relief Efforts in Tohoku

Devex has been organizing an event called the “Devex International Development Happy Hour” in many places of the world to encourage networking and information exchange among people in the international development field. The event brings together emerging and established leaders from various segments of the development sector such as international aid organizations, development consulting firms, private companies, among others, for an opportunity to network in an informal setting.

Now, in the “Devex Networking Event for supporting relief effort in Tohoku,” participants can share information about International NGOs’ work in rebuilding Tohoku, as well as disseminate ideas on what each person can do to help in recovery efforts for the disaster-stricken area.

After the devastating earthquake and tsunami of March 11, many international NGOs, which normally conduct operations abroad for disaster and emergency support, have dispatched teams to Tohoku. With expertise and skill, they have delivered assistance on specific areas could not be easily covered by government support.

In the event, we plan to share knowledge on recovery activities conducted by NGOs in Tohoku and present the needs of the people there and manpower required and requested by those affected.

In this regards, we would like to request participants to write messages to the people of Tohoku who are suffering tremendously and have been cut off from the most common modes of communication such as television and mobile phone services. Your messages of encouragement will help them get through tough times. Cards, paintings and photos with messages of hope are also welcome. The messages will be delivered to Tohoku district through the NGOs who support this project.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail. Do join us in this worthwhile event. Bring as many friends and colleagues as you can.
