DDM Relief Team To Provide Humanitarian Assistance To Cyclone Victims in Burma
Cyclone Nargis hit Burma on 3 May, 2008. Tens of thousands of people have lost their lives and hundreds of thousands are now left homeless. It is the worst natural disaster to hit the country since the 2004 tsunami. International humanitarian relief organizations are ready to head to Burma to provide basic living necessities to those affected by this devastating cyclone.
Dharma Drum Social Welfare and Charity Foundation was quick to react and has organized for a relief team to set off for cyclone affected regions on 11 May. Extending Buddhist's compassion for the world, the Foundation will donate approximately two tons of basic necessities including blankets, drinking water, medication, raincoats, lights and tents.
