Ap­peal for Burma

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL AID char­ity World Jewish Re­lief has launched an emer­gency ap­peal for vic­tims of the Burma cy­clone.

WJR says that food, cook­ing equip­ment, health kits, mos­quito nets, wa­ter pu­rifi­ca­tion tablets and plas­tic sheet­ing are ur­gently re­quired.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Paul An­ti­coni urged the com­mu­nity to rally to the aid of sur­vivors. “Ac­cess for aid agen­cies is heav­ily re­stricted but WJR will en­deav­our to work as closely as pos­si­ble with po­ten­tial part­ners on the ground.” The aim was to help those most af­fected, “by pro­vid­ing clean wa­ter, san­i­ta­tion re­sources and safe shel­ter”.
