Through the help of Muslim Aid, the JIT have supported up to 6000 tsunami affected people in Sendai with food and water. The local authorities in Sendai welcomed the dry food items as there is currently no gas or electricity in the vicinity for cooking. Goods were also distributed to the Okada Elementary school in Miyagino-ku, Sendai, which is currently serving as an evacuation centre.
