The Estonian Foreign Ministry is helping people in Burma (also known as Myanmar) who are suffering in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis with 500,000 kroons, donated through the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The sum was allocated from the Foreign Ministry's development and humanitarian aid budget.

The Estonian Foreign Ministry is supporting the needy in Myanmar with 500,000 kroons, donated through the World Food Program (WFP).
According to Foreign Minister Urmas Paet, the humanitarian crisis and the blatant violation of human rights in Myranmar are very alarming. "According to UN data, one third of the nation's residents live below the poverty line," said Paet. "We hope that our small contribution, made through the WFP, can help to alleviate the situation for those in need," he added.
