The decimation left behind by Cyclone Nargis is not getting as much media coverage as it should: we’re beginning to witness the full extent of the devastation all over Burma. The region has not seen a disaster of this scale for decades and the death toll, which already stands at 22,000, shows no sign of receding. With millions of people displaced and reported missing, the objective remains to get as much clean water, food, shelter and clothing to the survivors as soon as possible. The risk of disease and infection is high and without vital sanitation, this humanitarian catastrophe is due to worsen still.
Muslim Hands is launching an urgent appeal for funds and is dispatching aid teams to the region. Survivors are in desperate need of food, clean water, shelter, sanitation and clothing. Please donate generously as your financial support will help save lives. Go to www.muslimhands.org, or call us on 0115 911 7222
