Most readers are aware of the tragic situation in Burma as they try to recover from the devastating cyclone. The response of the military junta has been far too slow and hard-hearted. Finally they have agreed to let the international community in to offer disaster relief. You can help too by supporting organisations like Canadian Lutheran World Relief and the Evangelical Lutheran Church In Canada’s Global Hunger and Development Appeal. You can call CLWR to donate at: 1.800.661.2597 or visit: www.clwr.org/donate . You can call ELCIC’s GHDA to donate at: 1.888.786.6707 or visit: http://elcic.ca/GHDA. Most NGOs of this nature are highly trustworthy; even supported by the Canadian International Development Agency; and do excellent work—respecting the cultural values and dignity of the recipients; while efficiently managing resources to keep administrative costs at a minimum and ensuring that the appropriate assistance reaches those in greatest need.
