Give Direct Emergency Relief to Burmese Cyclone Victims
www.shelterboxusa.org

You can provide immediate, direct relief to Burmese cyclone victims.This relief will go entirely to the victims, not be sidetracked by government agencies, politics or administrative siphoning.

ShelterBox USA is poised to send a first shipment of 200 ShelterBoxes to Burma.  These ShelterBoxes will provide 2,000 cyclone victims immediate shelter plus the tools needed to boil water, cook food and bury waste.  ShelterBox USA is a non-profit, international service project of the Rotary Club.  The Rotary Club is a worldwide organization of people whose goal is to come together and give back.

These ShelterBoxes are currently pre-positioned in Dubai.  A fully trained, on-the-ground response team will directly distribute the ShelterBoxes in Burma.  All that is necessary is the go-ahead from the Myanmar government.

The charge d'affaires of the Myanmar Embassy in Washington was personally contacted today with the offer of 200 donated ShelterBoxes by a highly placed Burmese-American.  A formal request to approve ShelterBox relief has been forwarded to Yangon.  The government has
already indicated its readiness to accept international aid if it is non-political.

Each ShelterBox contains a 10-person tent, bedding, water
purification tablets, a trenching shovel, cooking/eating utensils, tools and stove, etc.  ShelterBox USA has provided disaster relief to tsunami and Katrina victims, responded to the Pakistani earthquake and is currently providing humanitarian relief in the Sudan.
