Myanmar Cyclone Relief Fund
Date:5/8/2008

PHILADELPHIA, May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The worst cyclone in the history of Myanmar, the tropical Cyclone Nargis, attacked the low lying delta area of Myanmar, including its capital Yangon on Friday, May 2, 2008.

It is believed that more than 100,000 are dead and the death toll is spiraling up, minute by minute. In one small town alone, Bogalay, at least 10,000 are claimed dead. Forty one thousand people are missing. The population at risk in the disaster area is about 24 million.

Since there is no water and electricity in many areas, communicable diseases threaten, including typhoid, dysentery, cholera, Dengue hemorrhagic fever and malaria.

Alumni Myanmar Institutes of Medicine (AMIMA) intends to donate to Yangon General Hospital and to the Emergency Medical Relief Team headed by Professor U Hla Myint, President, Myanmar Medical Council. This established Myanmar traveling medical team has dealt with previous epidemics, such as Dengue hemorrhagic fever. They will provide medical care, clean water and food to prevent infectious diseases, as well as provide psychological counseling. Foreseeable needs include: medicines, emergency health kits and water sanitation supplies. Dr. Kyi Minn, adviser, World Vision will assist Professor U Hla Myint's team.

We request financial contributions only and promise the delivery. All donations are tax-deductible.

Please donate by writing checks paid to AMIMA. In the memo section, please specify: Cyclone Relief Fund. Please mail these checks to:
