If you are residents in Japan now, the term “donation” can be categorized into 3 semantic usages in Japanese. It is recommended to know the differences(⌒∇⌒)
“Kifu-kin” is sent to organizations, mainly NPOs and municipalities. And this money is often used for restoration of public the Gulf.
“Gien-kin” is directly handed to the victims. BUT the problem is that it tends to be distributed for them long after the accident. It’s partly because it often takes tremendous time to conduct equal distribution followed by very complicated investigations ,etc.
“Shien-kin” is transferred to organizations or institutions such as NPOs / NGOs who conduct activities in disaster areas. The best part of this donation is that the way they use the money you sent is very clear and QUICK!!! That’s the victims want from the bottom of their heart♡
One of the best organizations is The NIPPON FOUNDATION.
