Two weeks after Cyclone Nargis struck Myanmar on May 2, 2008, over 100,000 people are estimated to have perished and more than 1.5 million people are homeless. These numbers will rise in the coming weeks because of monsoon rains, contaminated water, disease, lack of food and the immense difficulty of reaching those in need.
CHF International is working closely with its partners to help organize emergency operations to get assistance to those who needed it.
(SILVER SPRING, MD, May 6, 2008) - CHF International has deployed an emergency response team to begin providing shelter for the hundreds of thousands of Burmese displaced from their homes as a result of Cyclone Nargis, which hit on May 2, and is issuing an urgent appeal for additional support.
The full impact of the deadliest tropical storm in a decade is only now becoming clear. Over 24 million people live in the areas affected by Cyclone Nargis. Recent information indicates that more than 22,500 people have died and some 41,000 are still missing.
