Aid Urgently Needed in Myanmar (Burma): Lutheran World Relief Responds
Date:5/8/2008

BALTIMORE, May 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Lutheran World Relief is supplying desperately needed emergency aid to Myanmar (Burma) in the wake of the devastating cyclone that struck there over the weekend. Lutheran World Relief is responding through our international partners in the global aid alliance Action by Churches Together (ACT) International.

Official reports indicate that over 60,000 people are dead or missing, with as many as 1 million homeless. These numbers are likely to rise. A United States diplomat in the area has estimated that as many as 100,000 may have been killed.

Reports from LWR's partner, ACT, indicate that water and electricity supplies have been cut to much of the country. The full extent of the destruction is still being ascertained as damage and need assessment information comes in and communication channels are slow and very limited.

Survivors are in dire need of food, clean water, shelter and other basic items. Your donations will help LWR provide much-needed relief to the families affected by this tragedy.

LWR accepts donations online at http://www.lwr.org/giving; by phone at 1-800-597-5972; or by mail at P.O. Box 17061 Baltimore, MD 21298-9832, USA.
