Local Organization Still Accepting Donations for Myanmar Survivors

By Stephen Florino

HONOLULU (KHNL) -- It's not much, but those trying to help the victims in Myanmar say they hope all the drops will eventually add up.

The Myanmar Association of Hawaii says it's raised $7,000 dollars in its initial fundraising efforts.

On May 2nd, Cyclone Nargis slammed the mainland of Myanmar, killing thousands, and leaving up to a million without food, water, and homes.

The first priority -- sending water purification tablets and medicine.

"There's already an outbreak of choleric in certain areas, and also malarial diseases that's happening. And of course, that's a major problem that's gonna start, and it doesn't stop. So we gotta nip it in the bud real fast," said Dr. Tin Myaing Thien of the Myanmar Association of Hawaii.

The Association is continuing to collect donations.

Anyone who wants to make donations to help victims in Myanmar, can send checks to:

MYANMAR ASSOCIATION OF HAWAII

720 N KING ST

HONOLULU 96817
