Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) — Last week’s news headlines were swarmed in stories of sadness and despair for the victims of the devastating typhoon that ravaged Myanmar. Cyclone Nargis swept through the southeast Asian country leaving approximately 2 million victims facing disease and starvation.
According to the Associated Press the death toll keeps rising with staggering pictures and numbing statistics. “Myanmar reported that the official death toll from Cyclone Nargis had risen by nearly 3,500 to 31,938. Nearly 30,000 others remain missing, and the U.N. and others have said the death toll could reach 100,000 or higher.”
Although the Burmese government is being resistant about accepting financial aid from other countries, Internet giant, Google, has begun accepting donations through a specially designed page to aid the victims of the typhoon with proceeds going to Unicef and Direct Relief International. In an outreach of compassion, Google said it would donate up to $1 million for the relief efforts in Myanmar, and has called upon users to join efforts to assist the cyclone victims.
Rallying our world together in this dire time of need, Google’s message posted on the webpage (www.Google.Com/myanmarcyclone) states, “Your donation will help survivors and other disaster victims rebuild their communities and their lives. In addition, when you donate on this page, Google donates too. We’ll donate up to one million dollars to help organizations provide relief.”
Now is the time to put human compassion in the forefront of our minds and join forces in helping the families who were put out by this devastating catastrophe.
