Give2Asia Opens Disaster Recovery Fund for Burma Cyclone Relief Efforts
Date:5/9/2008

SAN FRANCISCO, May 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Give2Asia, a U.S. public charity with a local network across Asia, has launched a Disaster Recovery Fund for emergency relief following the devastation left by Cyclone Nargis that struck Burma in early May. The initial devastation is now compounded by an acute shortage of food and clean water.

Those interested in making a donation for recovery in Burma, can contribute online at: http://www.give2asia.org/burma-cyclone.

Funds raised for relief efforts will be granted to organizations on the ground in Burma working directly with affected communities. Give2Asia (http://www.give2asia.org/index.cfm), which has not, and normally does not, grant funds for programs in Burma, will be supporting relief efforts following the U.S. government's temporary relaxation of funding restrictions in response to the aftermath of the cyclone.

"The international community is coming together in response to this devastating natural disaster that has resulted in great loss of life," said Ray Klinke, interim CEO of Give2Asia. "From reports on the ground, we know the situation is dire. We are now working with partners in the area to make whatever contributions we can in this tragic situation."
