Okay, two minutes later and I'm bawling.

CNN just did a story on children in Myanmar. Complete with images of dead and living parentless children trying to survive. Horrible horrible beyond words.
World Vision is one of the few aid agencies being allowed to hgelp in the country. There was a great piece on NewsHour with Jim Lehrer last night. They are allowed to purchase items in country and distribute them right now, but they are still negotiating flying their own supplies--which are still on a runway somewhere--into the country and to distribute them themselves so that the regime doesn't put them on the blackmarket. Without medical aid and clean water they are expecting one million deathsin addtion to the reported 100,00 already.
Please donate.

Hey - I followed your link from Amy's blog - I just did a 30 Hour Famine weekend with a church youth group through World Vision. I hope they get to help - what's happened(ing) is tragic.

I've tried to avoid looking at the footage...I knew as soon as the regime wouldn't let supplies be shipped unless they could distribute that it was going to be bad and that I wouldn't be able to do anything about it.
Glad they are letting someone in now...hope they soon allow outside supplies.
Thanks for the link!
Love,
Mom
