Make a donation for relief assistance

On Saturday, May 3, 2008, a cyclone devasted vast areas of Burma. More than two million people have been left homeless.

Because of the malicious incompetence of the military junta the aftermath has been more catastrophic than the storm itself.

Many people are taking shelter in Buddhist monasteries.

Buddhist Relief Mission is cooperating with a Sangha network to distribute food, medicine, and clean drinking water to these refugees.

The military junta iontinues to interfere with relief efforts, but the monks and volunteers are able to reach the affected areas and to distriibute relief supplies. This unprecedented humaanitarian crisis persists.

As of June 7, Buddhist Relief Mission and Burmese Relief Center--Japan has sent $30,000 worth of medicine and other relief supplies to the victims.

Sadhu! Sadhu!! Sadhu!!!
