Support relief efforts in Myanmar (Burma)

Thursday, May 08, 2008

The situation in Myanmar (Burma) continues to deteriorate in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis. It is estimated that more than 22,000 lives have perished and 41,000 people are missing. One million people are left without shelter, electricity, and clean water. Some reports suggest that the death toll could rise even higher if help does not arrive in a timely manner.

As a Googler and a citizen of Myanmar, I'd like to bring your attention to a way that you can help: this donations page. Even small donations will help, so please consider making a donation to support the relief efforts in Myanmar.
