Urgent Action to Support Myanmar Cyclone Victims

After Saturday's devastating cyclone, Myanmar is in desperate need of relief funds. MercyCorps is channeling donations to agencies on the ground providing support to families in need. Just today the numbers have been updated to indicate 22,500 dead, another 41,000 missing, and an estimated 1 million people homeless. This tragedy comes amidst increasing governmental controls that are impacting relief aid efforts from outside countries.

Please support the people of Myanmar by donating, if you are able.

Thanks, Cori -

If anyone else living here in the Bay Area is looking for a way to support the people of Burma, let me know. A visiting environmental journalist here at the Berkeley J-school, Myint Zaw, is collecting supplies to take with him when he returns home to Burma next weekend.

He is asking people to leave supplies with Carolyn Wakeman, another j-school professor, in the North Gate Hall basement, room B34.

Myint is collecting the following (in bulk, if possible):

--water purification tablets
--folding water containers (for storage of clean water)
--any kind of nutritious crackers
--additional vitamin supplies

The deadline for this collection is May 17, as he will be flying back the next day.

For more information, visit Myint Zaw's blog documenting his stay at the
J-School, stories and travels.

I'm cross-posting this to Resource ExChange.
