American Airlines, Japan Society, Rotary Club, and US-Japan Foundation to support Japanese Medical Society of America and 9/11 Tribute Center again for the Second Outreach Mission to Japan
In August 2013, American Airlines flew a second team to Japan for an outreach mission. JMSA and Rotary International led members of the 9.11 community (family members, survivors, rescue and recovery workers, residents of the WTC neighbourhood) and Mount Sinai Global Health to share their personal stories of transformation and give hope to survivors of the 3.11 earthquake disaster in Tohoku, Japan with children in need and the community.
"At American Airlines, supporting children and their families is a primary focus of our Kids in Need program," said Bernie Willett, American's Director – Citizenship and Community Programs. "We're proud to partner with JMSA for the 2nd consecutive year to join their mission to give hope to children in Tohoku, Japan, who are still suffering from 3/11 disaster.”George Packard, the President of the United States-Japan Foundation, “extends every good wish for the success of the project.”
