LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 18, 2011) - When the world is in a crisis humanitarian organisations are the first to respond. Darren Turner Managing Director at Midlands Consulting Centre looks into the impact that non profit organisations have on people of the world. Midlands Consulting Centre who specialise in outsource sales for non profit organisations believe that they need more support and awareness to account for all the resources needed to fund such massive response.
Japan is in a region where seismic activity is extremely high; however with the size of the 8.8 magnitude Earthquake means it was the largest Tsunami that hit Southern Asia in 2004. "Earthquakes are measured in magnitude, on a scale ranging from micro to great. A magnitude of 6.0 and above is classified as strong and can cause severe damage, like the Christchurch earthquake in New Zealand; the largest earthquake in recent years was in Sumatra in 2004. It measured 9.3 and triggered the devastating Asian tsunami." – BBC Website
The Red Cross and Save the Children have acted to help the over 100,000 displaced Children and Families. With the death toll due to rise to 10,000, there are 1.4 million homes without electricity and water.
"I believe that humanitarian organisations like the Red Cross have a massive part to play and more exposure is needed so they can get the support they deserve" – Darren Turner Managing Director of Midlands Consulting Centre
The Japanese Red Cross has been working on the ground since the disaster began, mobilising 85 teams, made up of more than 700 doctors, nurses and support staff, to provide first aid and healthcare and assess the damage and needs of the communities affected. Quake hit Japan faces a recovery and reconstruction bill of at least US $180-billion, or 3% of its annual economic output and more than 50% higher than the total cost of 1995's earthquake in Kobe.
"With our continual efforts at Midlands Consulting Centre to work with Non profit organisations there is need for people to realise the impact of fundraising and that donations are needed on going, month by month and not when disaster strikes" says Darren Turner of Midlands Consulting Centre.
With the massive overhaul of infrastructure and the threat of a nuclear meltdown Japan is in need of more help than ever. Midlands Consulting Centre will support the drive to help one the world leading nations back on its feet. The devastating truth is that Mother Nature is potent to strike anywhere. As technology makes our world even smaller we need to be able to support each other when in need of crisis.
"Today's events are a reminder of just how fragile life can be, our hearts go out to our friends in Japan and across the region. We will stand with them as they recover and rebuild form this tragedy".
