On May 15, the Democratic Party of Japan established a new Countermeasures
Headquarters to coordinate its efforts to provide relief for victims of
Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar and the major earthquake in Sichuan, China.
In the coming days, members of the DPJ plan to visit the embassies of both
Myammar and China in order to offer condolences and present donations from
DPJ members and from the party itself. DPJ also intends to hold fundraising

Finally, in consultation with various NGOs and the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, DPJ will provide assistance as dictated by needs on the ground.
