Cyclone damage in Burma

Cyclone in Burma

As you may have already heard, the damage is far more extensive than they originally estimated. 10,000 is quite far off from 350. I still haven’t got contact with my brother – which worries me but I think he should be okay.

For now, if you want to help, please donate to ICRC and designate it to Myanmar on the drop down list.

I look up a way to send money as soon as I saw the 10,000 number and realized ‘oh crap. this is really bad. I must do something.’ As far as I know, this is the most direct route to get food/water/medicine to the people who are affected since ICRC is already there and helping out. If you know of a more effective way to help, please let me know.

Edit: the number is climbing as more info is available. sigh. 🙁

I put up the pictures I took when I went home last time on the picture slide show widget on the right to remind everyone of what a beautiful country it is.
