Message from Ghanaians

Ghanaians who survived the most powerful earthquake to hit Japan on Friday write on their experiences



  • 10:00pm (GMT) “…. tell my people I am alive. Some Ghanaians are missing. I will be sending you updates whenever i can.”
    -Chris Amoah & wife (Tokyo)10:45pm (GMT): “… no need to ask [government] for evacuation. This is not a war, we want to remain here to help our brothers”
  • 11:30pm (GMT): “….About 170,000 people have been evacuated from the area around a quake-damaged nuclear plant in north-east Japan that was hit by an explosion …. I know about 3 Ghanaians living in that area. No news on them yet”
  • The 8.9-magnitude quake that struck off the coast of Japan Friday pummeled buildings, set off massive fires and tossed a subsequent 30-foot tsunami over the largely-populated City of Sendai, among others.

If you live in japan and have information about Ghanaians, please post it on the comments page.
