Dear Friends,

The cyclone death toll is now reported to be up to 100,000. The dictators of Burma are actively obstructing local as well as international relief efforts. Local organizations and churches are working in the affected area and doing their best to help survivors. We, Partners Relief and Development, and other organizations are working to support these local efforts. Here are photos of some of the devastation.

Please be advised that photos are graphic.


Thank you for your prayers and your concern for these people.

God Bless you,
Free Burma Rangers
