Please support UNICEF’s Myanmar (Burma) Cyclone Appeal
On 2 May, Cyclone Nargis struck Myanmar (Burma), leaving many thousands of people dead and hundreds of thousands of people homeless. The cyclone has caused widespread devastation, damaging buildings and destroying homes, leaving people without shelter. Thousands of children in Myanmar have lost everything to the cyclone. Not only are we concerned for their lack of shelter and clean water; we also fear for those children who have been separated from their loved ones.
UNICEF staff, who were already in the country prior to the cyclone, are working around the clock to reach the hundreds of thousands of people who have been affected by this disaster. Our pre-positioned stocks of supplies have allowed us to respond quickly to the urgent needs of children and their families. We have delivered supplies in the five affected districts and divisions including Laputta, the most severely hit township.
We are currently appealing for £13 million to meet the needs of children affected by this disaster for the next six months. Please help us to continue to provide assistance to the children of Myanmar by making a donation now.
