Several UN Messengers of Peace, including the Japanese ice skater Midori Ito and the United States actor Michael Douglas, have recorded public service announcements (PSAs) in which they express their solidarity for the people of Japan in the wake of the disaster.

"I want to reach out to you, the people of Japan, from the other side of the world," Mr. Douglas said in his message. "I want you to know that you are not alone, that you are in my thoughts, and the thoughts of people everywhere, as you work to rebuild your lives following the tragic events of 11 March. We are standing by your side, and the international community is ready to help."

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Princess Firyal of Jordan, a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), have also recorded messages of support.
