Founded in May 2005, the Real Medicine Foundation was a result of the knowledge people had gained from working with the Southeast Asian Tsunami relief. Combining humanitarian support to people living in poverty and creating sustainable programs, the Real Medicine Foundation is based on focusing on a personal approach to medicine. People are seen as a whole, not just an ailment, and long-term, sustainable solutions are a result of that outlook.
Then and Now: Southeast Asia in 2004 and Japan in 2011
As little as 6 years separate the tragic tsunamis that hit Southeast Asia in 2004 and Japan in 2011. Gigantic earthquakes struck out at sea prompting huge tsunamis that wiped out entire cities.
On December 26, 2004, the Indian Ocean tsunami was brought on by a 9.1-magnitude earthquake which was the third largest earthquake ever recorded. This earthquake lasted between 8 and 10 minutes and caused the entire planet to vibrate 1 cm. Thanks to humanitarian efforts $14 million were donated to relieve the people in the mire dire situations.
Fast forward to current day: Japan was struck with an 8.9-magnitude earthquake and needs your help. The Real Medicine Foundation is working hard to donate money and is figuring out a way to contribute their expertise and resources.
