have initiated a response to the flooding and have despatched a medical

This project is most likely being coordinated through the MSF OCP emergency
desk for the Asia Pacific region which is based out of Tokyo. I can follow
up with them if anyone is interested but I have seen nothing further about
the earthquakes either on the MSF intranet or GDACS.
