This project was to provide an immediate relief effort in Japan by shipping a truckload of 52,800 cans of water for immediate distribution to persons living in evacuation centers, schools, and orphanages.

In partnership with CannedWater4Kids, the truckload of canned water was prepared, packed, and shipped according to plan.

Second Harvest Japan took possession of the water in Japan and arranged for distribution.

Charles E. McJilton, CEO / Executive Director of Second Harvest, reports:


  1. We distributed the water to relief agencies working in the
    Minami-sanriku area.  This town was completely decimated and now
    must rely on water from outside the area.
  2. We added the water to care packages we sent out to people in
    temporary housing.
  3. We handed out water to individuals who came to pick up food from
    us in Minami-soma on June 4th. Here is a video of some of the
    distribution:

Thank you for your support.

We again wish to thank Six Senses Resorts & Spas for providing the funding for this project.
