Please Help Cyclone Victims of Burma (Myanmar)

Cyclone Nargis, the worst natural disaster in the Asia region since the Tsunami, devastated Burma (Myanmar) on 3rd May 2008. The estimated death toll has now crossed the 100,000 mark.

Surviving victims lack clean water, food, shelter and medical attention having been left stranded in flooded lands and fields full of decomposing bodies. Every hour, and every minute is important as a major epidemic is on the way.

Please help these pitiful people who are in dire need.

Your kind donations will be channeled through reliable welfare organizations and aid groups.

Thank you on behalf of the victims.
