Burma Cyclone Disaster Fund

Avaaz, the people who organised the 1,670,000 signature petition for Tibet, have just launched a drive to raise funds for the International Burmese Monks Organization.

In many of the worst-hit areas, the monasteries are the only source of shelter and food for Burma's poorest people. They have been on the front lines of the aid effort since the storm struck. Other forms of aid could be delayed, diverted or manipulated by the Burmese government--but the monks are the most trusted and reliable institution in the country.

At the time of writing the fund already stands at € 999,641 and their original target was for € 1,000,000 !
