The few images from Myanmar are heartbreaking. The magnitude of the suffering is staggering. The actions of the military junta are mindboggling.
The world seeks to respond but many rightly wonder if aid will make it to the people most in need.
The Presbyterian Church has put out an appeal for aid for Myanmar. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance will work with their long-time partners Action by Churches Together and Church World Service to move relief aid into Myanmar only when they are confident the situation is secure. In addition, over one million refugees from Myanmar are expected to arrive in bordering countries. Relief aid may be needed to feed and clothe these individuals.
