More On Myanmar

Today, we distributed rice to 3,000 people, using locally available food. On Wednesday, we distributed water to about 10,000 people in townships in Yangon. The recipients were those staying in temporary shelters and others who have no access to town water supplies. In addition to supplying them with bottled water, we cleaned the wells and toilets at the collective shelters, many of which are located in schools and pagodas.

We”re now assembling 50,000 family kits in Bangkok to be flown into Myanmar as soon as possible. Inside the kits are blankets, jerry cans, plastic sheeting, clothes, and kitchen and hygiene items. We”re hopeful about an early delivery for these items.

Have you been watching the media coverage on Myanmar? What”s your take on the situation?
