Myanmar Disaster: How You Can Help

Every new report we've brought you from Myanmar has been worse than the one before it.  The more that reporters and relief workers saw, the more it became clear that Cyclone Nargis was catastrophic.  If you're looking to help out, click right here to access CNN's Impact Your World resources.  You'll find links to organizations that are working to bring relief to storm-stricken areas of Myanmar.

    I think that this is a really big problem for Myanmar because of their government and it will take a while for them to recover from such a blow but i hope that the people do learn to build more secure houses if they have the resources to.

    ther are many countries in the earth.
    and many borderes seperate contries.
    but . the earth is one.
    cyclone is not a problem for only Myanmar. it`s our problem.
    i was so scared watching Cyclone power and the victims. then i thought "if it happen in korea? " .
    we should prepare somethings for environmen disaster and for the victims

    The best teacher is Ms.Chapman
    She teaches me with science and she always keeps me on tracks so i dont fall behind on grades. She makes me interested in the world i live in. I think she is the best teacher EVER!

    This devastating cyclone is horrible. It made millions of people homeless and deeply injured. Ironically, Myanmar government seems careless of these miserable compatriots. They even delay the foreign aid efforts. I believe God will eradicate the tyranny. Meanwhile, I'm thankful to what I have at the moment.

    in my eyes, if we try to help them and they just keep turning down our help,we should just stop trying to help. after all we have gas prices reaching $4.00 a gallon, wheat, rice and corn prices rising. people are losing their homes, and not mention our our dollar is losing it's value. but yet we are trying to help people that just don't want to be helped!

    this is a major tragedy foe Myanmar. They are going to have a hard time coming back from this considering that they are a very poor country. The people there need to learn to build securely so this will not happen again soon. A way I could and so should everyond is give some of the extra stuff I might have or are cheap like canned food, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. Hope this could hlep the people in Myanmar

    My heart breaks for Myanmar and the people who are in need of food, water and homes. I feel a deep connection to them because my Church does missionary work in Myanmar. Actually, some church members are in this turmoil right now! But, we have a feeling they are O.K. because the Airport near them is open. It was the Lord's will that they are there now to be able to comfort those grieving and give them the Lord's strength. I pray that his word (the words of the Bible) will touch the broken hearts of the Myanmar people and heal them.

    "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8-9 😀

    I think that even though Myanmar went through a horrible cyclone they will get past this disaster and be able to live life like before.

    The best teacher ever is my science teacher Mr. Schulenberg. Whenever we have a test he plays jeopardy with us to help us study and sometimes he gives us a note-card that we can put information on and we can use it for the test!

    Myanmar is obviously under a major devastation. Hopefully at somepoint in the future the lives of their people will get better, easier, and healthier. For now, all we can do is hope, and thank God every day for what we have as Americans.

    This is a terrible disaster, I would consider it the worst natural disaster ever to occur in the world. I hope the missing will be found and that the people of Myanmar will recover from this awful disaster.

    This is horrible!!!We are appalled at seeing bodies being dumped in the river. The decomposing bodies will also cause more disease.

    This is very sad! I am going to do all I can to help these people. I can't even imagine what it would be like if this happened to me.

    I think the best way to help the cyclone vicyims is to continue to pray for thier saftey and the relief effort there.

    I think free rice is a great way to help!

    I just can't believe that Myanmar won't let help in. There's tons of free aid knocking on their door, but they just won't open it.

    Every week the students in our class have debates about everything we learn or hear about from CNN Student News. Recently hearing about the problems in Myanmar and in China, our class has been discussing what's happening in those areas. I think Mrs. Caipa is doing a great job on helping us learn and CNN News is a bonus. Thank you for helping us all year!
