Burma Cyclone Nargis Relief

Posted by libhom Friday, May 09, 2008

Hat tip to Ten Percent, which has a list of charities offering assistance to the people of Burma. That blog has been one of the best portals for information on Burma for some time now. Below, I've weeded out the list, taking out charities that are religious, discriminate on the basis of age, aren't offering specific cyclone relief, or who don't have online donations capacity.

Direct Relief International [In the "Designation" field, choose Myanmar (Burma) Cyclone.]

Mercy Corps

US Campaign for Burma (Check the "Check Here to make your donation go to relief efforts" box at the bottom of the form.)

Action Against Hunger (UK - donations in pounds - in "I want my donation to go" choose "to the Burma emergency appeal")

CARE UK (donations in pounds)

Rick from Ten Percent also linked to this Photo Gallery of the Effects of Cyclone Nargis.

One has to wonder if Global Warming played a role in the severity of the cyclone.

  2. Thank you for this list, which I found via google while searching for an NGO secular institute to donate to for the Burma Cyclone appeal. As a secular humanist it's difficult to know what emergency relief services to choose between and I appreciate your research.
