UNDAC & WFP Appeal for Warehousing Facilities, Uplift Equipment & Transportation

The following is an urgent appeal for uplift equipment, warehousing facilities and transportation to affected areas from Dr. Jemilah Mahmood who is the UNDAC Head of Relief Operations in Burma:

Today, all the flights and aid consignments have safely arrived and cleared to the individual agencies with no difficulty. There is an urgent need for warehousing facilities, transportation to the affected areas and "uplift" equipment as the one (being currently) used is faulty and may delay transfer of goods out of the planes. If there is anyone out there who can provide the "uplift" equipment, please contact the logistics cluster urgently. Thank you.

I am HAPPY to donate, and we do through our church. Question: Is the help really getting there or is the Military Dictatorship lining the pockets of themselves or their cronies?

Hi Cynthia,

On Aid delivery, yes it is really going to areas where help is most needed, I would suggest that you give to local NGOs (ex: ShelterBox, YMCA, YMBA, etc.) or International aid agencies who have teamed up with their local partners on the ground such as IRFC, Oxfam, CARE, UNICEF & Save the Children, WFP, etc.
