The Japanese Foreign Ministry said that it would provide $200,000 to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina. Japan also identified needs in affected regions via the U.S. government and provided up to $300,000 in emergency supplies such as tents, blankets and power generators if they receive requests from the U.S. for such assistance. One Japanese individual, Takashi Endo, donated USD 1 million from his personal funds to Katrina relief efforts.
Offered to send 45 doctors and 155 other medical staffers and 10,000 blankets to help survivors.

More U.S. warships arrived off Japan's coast on Sunday, ramping up relief efforts after a massive earthquake and tsunami killed an estimated 10,000 people or more and threatened to trigger a nuclear disaster. It is part of a huge mobilization of American forces in the Pacific to aid close-ally Japan that will see the U.S. military ferry humanitarian supplies, evacuate survivors and shuttle Japanese troops.

Did you notice there were no riots or looting? People seemed calm and generally were helping each other.
There was a picture of two men carrying elderly women on their backs.
If the same thing happened in the US, I doubt we handle the situation as well.
A$10 million (approximately US$7.5 million), and a team of 1,000 emergency response officers immediately. Donated A$20 million to American Red Cross.
As I heard in a movie once, "We are all children of the Earth" - no matter how lame and corny that sounds, it's true.
