http://www.redcross.ie A year on from the triple disaster which hit Japan on 11 March, 2011, when a massive earthquake and tsunami were followed by a nuclear accident.
A year after Japan's worst recorded disaster, the stricken area is showing clear signs of recovery, with most debris cleared and businesses reopening. But the hardest-hit towns are progressing more slowly, with survivors stressed over the lack of clear reconstruction plans, while the long term health affects of the Fukushima nuclear accident are causing acute anxiety.

The Japanese Red Cross is committed to bringing the issue of preparedness for nuclear accidents into sharper focus and, together with the IFRC, will host an international conference in Tokyo to start work towards new guidelines on nuclear accident preparedness.

JRCS, which deployed nearly 900 medical teams and hundreds of psychosocial workers to support the relief operations, is now focused on addressing the needs of more than 300,000 people still in temporary housing.
