Cyclone Nargis

Please Donate For Cyclone Nargis


On May 2nd, 2008, a deadly cyclone carrying 120mph winds slammed into villages and towns in the Irrawaddy delta southwest of Yangon in Burma causing trememdous damage and claiming thousands of lives.  At current, state radios are reporting more than 22,000 deaths and 42,000+ missing.  Many are estimating that figure to be closer to 100,000 or more deaths.  This is the most devastating cyclone to hit the world since the Bangladesh Cyclone of 1991.

In response to this devastation, the Shan Relief Foundation has set up a fund dedicated solely to providing relief aid to those affected by this terrible tragedy.  To assist, please send a cheque or money order to the Shan Relief Foundation (please indicate "Cyclone Nargis" on the memo section of your payment) or click on the special link below to donate online.

 

 

 

 

Thank you to all who continue to support the Shan and all peoples of Burma.  Without your help, many more men, women and children would suffer through starvation, homelessness, lack of medical aid, abuse or numerous other tragedies endured each and every day.  Through perseverance we can achieve great things and make a difference, one person at a time.
