Honda has promised to donate 300 million yen towards the relief and recovery effort in Japan as the country tries to come to terms with the disastrous effects of last week's earthquake and tsunami.

The company has also pledged to provide 1,000 generators (gasoline-powered and home-use gas canister-powered) as well as 5,000 gas canisters and will send Honda staff out to explain how to use the donated generators.
