The Anglican Church in Japan is drawing on its experience of the 2011 tsunami to respond to the powerful earthquakes that struck the island nation last month. Twin earthquakes of 6.5 and 7.3-magnitude on 14 and 16 April caused extensive damage in Kumamoto prefecture on Kyushu, the southern island of Japan, killing over 65 people and injuring nearly 1,600.
