MANILA, Philippines - The embassy of Japan in the Philippines yesterday expressed its deep appreciation for the relief goods from the Philippines, as it stressed these would help the Japanese cope with the effects of the earthquake and tsunami that struck the nation last March 11.

In a statement released yesterday, the Japan Information and Culture Center (JICC) said “The Government and people of Japan, with the assistance being extended by the international community including the Philippines, will make an all-out effort to overcome the challenges brought about by the earthquake and tsunami.”

The relief goods, containing 1,500 food packs, 12,000 cup noodles and 1,000 bath towels to be distributed in Miyagi Prefecture, as well as 1,000 plastic mats and 5,000 dust masks to be distributed in Iwate Prefecture, arrived at the Narita Airport on March 25.
