ERD is Getting Help to Myanmar

You may have heard that many countries are trying to get help to Myanmar after the recent cyclone there devastated the country but the military junta was not allowing the aid to go through. Carol from Ways of the World here on the Farm passes on the following information.
Because Burma was a British colony and has an Anglican church, Episcopal Relief and Development was already on the ground there right away. Here is the operative paragraph from Monday's story: "Working with its partner, the Church of the Province of Myanmar, ERD is sending funds to secure shelter, food water and other relief needs for people displaced by the Cyclone. As part of a long-term strategy, ERD has been working for the past two years with five dioceses on economic development including agriculture, livestock, and micro-loans, clean water and education programs."
