Volunteers needed to help disaster victims in Japan
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Fresno State professor has pulled together a group of responders to help the victims in Japan, deal with the trauma they're experiencing.
Dr. John Dussich says about twenty people from the Central Valley will be heading with him to Japan by the middle of next month. He plans on taking grief counselors with him, who are specially trained in disasters.
Dr. Dussich said, "There's an appreciation of the intensity of the traumas. There's also a greater chance that they're going to have multiple traumas. They may have, in addition to the loss of a person, they may have lost five or six persons. They may have lost their entire house."
The team is still looking for volunteers and monetary support.
