Prague- The Czech Foreign Ministry
has earmarked another 2.5 million crowns in support of Burma, devastated
by a cyclone, thus raising the overall sum of its humanitarian aid to 5
million crowns, the ministry told CTK today.
The disaster in Burma claimed the lives
of 22,500 and left about a million people homeless.
Aid to Burma will also be provided by
Czech humanitarian organisations such as Charita Czech Republic or People
The ministry said that only a very limited
number of NGOs and humanitarian organisations can operate in Burma due
to the local political regime.
