LCIF Staff Member from Japan Helping Raise Funds for Quake, Tsunami Victims
Norio Tanabe, a Development Manager for our Foundation in Oak Brook, normally spends his days raising money for disaster relief around the world from Asian countries, including Japan. Now, LCIF is providing more than US$1.25 million for immediate and long-term disaster relief in Japan.
Norio grew up in Kesennuma in Japan’s Miyagi Province. He told a local news crew “I saw my town, where I was born, and (there was a) big fire … I think surely everything is gone.”
