The Burmese government has been found to be blocking aid to its citizens, with the suffering they have endured and the pain they're undergoing.

The world fears for the people of Burma, and its suffering cannot continue unabated.

On a personal note, I've donated USD10 to the UNICEF, and USD5 to the International Burmese Monks Organization through Avaaz. Please support the amazing work these organisations are doing.
