Dear AGLA NY Members and Friends,
Most of you will remember the devastating Earthquake that hit Armenia in 1988 and how important relief efforts were to helping in the reconstruction of Northern Armenia. Natural disasters have struck again, this time in Myanmar and in China. Over 12,000 are dead in China alone and many more injured.
I want to urge anyone who can help by making a financial contribution to help the people of China and Myanmar, to please do so. While you can of course make donations through a whole host of agencies, I am including links to two organizations that are already sending aid. It is unclear to us whether the Junta in Myanmar will allow aid or not and to what extent, but China is definitely happy to do so:
