Myanmar's Cyclone Nargis Survivors Still Need Help

Published on 03 May 2009

The monsoons are due any day now, and for the hundreds of villagers with fresh memories of last year's deadly Cyclone Nargis, an emergency shelter that opened Saturday was yet another reminder that their huts - and their lives - remain fragile.(...) "Shelter is probably the No. 1 challenge or difficulty faced by hundreds of thousands of families across the delta," said Paul Risley, a spokesman for the U.N.'s World Food Program, which expects to provide rations for the rest of the year to at least 350,000 survivors.
