Crisis in Myanmar and China

Over the past few weeks, news coming out of both Myanmar (Burma) and China have been tragic. DEPDC has received many emails asking about our role in the rehabilitation and support efforts in both of these areas. Unfortunatly, DEPDC is in the same position as the rest of the world. We want to help in whatever way possible but our ability to help directly is limited. As of now, DEPDC is collecting clothing and foods at the Mae Sai site which we will then pass onto the Thai government in the hopes that they reach people in need in Myanmar. We are also strongly encouraging people interested in helping with monetary donations to consider giving to Oxfam/Netherlands. Oxfam Novib have been long time supporters of DEPDC and have a strong, reputable presence in the rescue effort in Myanmar. Please visit their website at www.oxfamnovib.nl for more information.
