On Sunday it will be exactly a year since the one of the most powerful earthquakes on record struck the north-east coast of Japan, triggering a massive tsunami.

The Japanese National Police Agency confirmed 15,850 deaths and thousands injured and missing. Up to 100,000 children were forced from their homes because of the disaster.

Children's charity Save The Children has been actively supporting families in the aftermath. They have put together a picture story about Ami, seven, and her experiences after she was separated from her mother.
