Japan in evidence!

According to The Guardian (guardian.co.uk), Tokyo Electric Power Company, which runs the Fukushima Daiichi plant, says radiation levels at the unit are well below the legal limits following the last morning's hydrogen explosion (March, 14th). Radiation at Unit 3 measured 10.65 microsieverts; operators must inform the government if a level of 500 microsieverts is reached.
Health experts have stressed that the risk from radiation appears low. Reuters has spoken to the Gregory Hartl of the World Health Organisation, who told the agency:
"At this moment it appears to be the case that the public health risk is probably quite low. We understand radiation that has escaped from the plant is very small in amount."
That has not stopped people from worrying. Singaporean authorities have announced they will test imported Japanese produce for potential radiation "as a precautionary measure".

For sure people are worried about a radiation disaster, but much stronger than the fear is the solidarity! Due to the distance, instead of donating food or what else they need, the Japanese community in SP, Liberdade, are asking people to donate money because it's easier to send it. If you want to help, here are the account numbers for your donation.
Let's help Japan of all the ways we can!
