EA Worldwide Shock as Japan's Natural Disasters Intensify

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 18, 2011) - EA Worldwide express concern for the people of Japan after the 9.0 magnitude earthquake hit in the Pacific Ocean Friday, 11 March at 2.46pm causing destruction through blackouts, fires, a tsunami and more recently an explosion from Fukushima nuclear plant.

EA Worldwide an outsourced sales and marketing firm based in central London have publicised their support for the victims of Japan through their on-going donations through the British Red Cross. Thousands of people have lost their homes and loved ones through this most recent, shocking natural disaster. As Japan faces the country's biggest challenge since World War II, It is estimated more than 10,000 people may have lost their lives.

EA Worldwide Managing Director Josh Cote comments ''It has been horrific to think of the severity of this disaster. We feel lucky to be in a position to offer help and assistance to the many great charities who are working so hard to support Japan through this awful time." Since the earthquake and 23-foot tsunami struck close to 600,000 people are estimated to have been evacuated from the most affected areas and 2.5million homes are left without power or water. 

It is thought 17,000 UK nationals were working in Japan when the disaster hit, although none are confirmed dead there are grave concerns for their safely of several Britons. Survivors are said to be remaining calm but have since been made aware of the possibility of exposure to radiation from two local nuclear reactors that were damaged during the quake and tsunami. Residents within a 20km radius have been advised to evacuate the area. ''The recent explosions and possibility of radiation poisoning on top of everything else Japan has had to deal with over the last few days is terrible, it's difficult to imagine how people are coping" continues Josh Cote, Managing Director at EA Worldwide.

EA Worldwide works significantly within the non-profit and charity sector. Focusing on acquiring donors for many UK and International charities has become a prominent part of their work particularly when natural disasters as huge as Japan's quake and tsunami take place. The huge number of people affected and their country's economic recovery will take decades. Many campaigns are currently being launched to raise money to assist in the recovery of Japan during their worst natural disaster to date.
