60,000 Children at Risk of Malnurition says the UN

The UN just released a statement saying that it’s seeking $300 million more to support the relief efforts in Myanmar.  “60,000 children were at risk of acute malnutrition,” according to U.N. humanitarian affairs chief John Holmes. Furthermore:

.. the cyclone had destroyed 42 percent of Myanmar’s food stocks and 55 percent of families had stocks for one day or less, meaning food aid was needed in the affected areas for many months to come.

This is precisely why I’m supporting Doctor’s Without Borders (MSF). They are an extremely capital efficient organization, who are not only providing medical care, but also much needed food aid to Myanmar. With a donation of as little as $25 MSF can deliver 2 meals a day to 150 children. Please take the time to donate.
