More than a week after the cyclone hit Burma, reports from the region now say that the death toll has reached 78,000 and that aid is still too slow getting to the areas worst hit. Furthermore Foreign Aid staff have been banned from going to the Irrawaddy delta area which was the region worst hit by the cyclone.

SOLIDAR members have been organising themselves and we can report that a team from Norwegian People's Aid has successfully managed to distribute goods through a local partner organisation in the Irrawaddy delta area.
