Help victims of Cyclone Nargis in Burma.
The numbers are staggering. Up to 100,000 people dead. A million, homeless. Not much more is known because journalists are restricted from entering Burma. The few reports that have emerged so far, paint a bleak picture. Entire families wiped out. Children sleeping next to mosquito-infected puddles. The constant threat of disease. Starvation.
We’ve all read about how incredibly uncooperative the military junta has been – how they’ve continually disrupted attempts at getting aid to the hardest-hit areas. But Burma needs help and our friends at Project Enlighten have decided that they must do something. They’re working with agencies on the Thai-Burma border to get supplies into the country. Their goal this week is to raise US$10,000 for the project.
Project Enlighten is run by the same people behind the Landmine Kids College Fund in Cambodia – people whom we respect and who, we know, will deliver on their promises.
Please help. 100 percent of your donations will go towards directly aiding victims of Cyclone Nargis.
