Respond to Disaster

There are many ways to offer assistance to the people in Burma/Myanmar, where, according to one U.S. diplomat, the death toll could hit 100,000.

One such effort is Covenant World Relief, which has already made funds available to people on the ground beginning relief work there.

A news release about the CWR work can be found on the Covenant website.

A special Covenant World Relief fund has been established to receive donations from Covenant congregations and individuals to aid in the relief effort. Donations should be earmarked for Myanmar Relief and sent to Covenant World Relief, 5101 N. Francisco Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60625. Donations also can be made online by credit card at Myanmar Relief.

“We are working with two partners on the ground in Myanmar as we speak,” Sundholm says, “and we have two previous partners who have expressed interest in working with us to bring assistance to the people in Myanmar.”
