"Japan is being battered by both natural and man-made disasters. The suffering is extensive and it's heartbreaking," said David B. Snow Jr., Medco chairman and CEO.

The American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund will help meet the immediate needs of victims of the recent earthquake and Pacific tsunami by distributing relief items, clearing debris and by providing emotional support and medical transportation to the Japanese people as they begin to rebuild their lives.
