In an interview with Christianity Today, Laura Blank – an emergency communications officer for World Vision – spoke about what their agency has been able to do to help bring relief aid to the people of Myanmar since day one of the disaster.
As soon as the storm ended, we were able to begin distributing rice, clean water, fuel, rebuilding supplies, and blankets—the basic things that we wanted to get to people as soon as we could. Because we’d been there for so long, we were able to purchase goods locally and in bulk, and try to start some of the relief efforts on a very small scale.
While it has been reported that Myanmar government officials have been uncooperative with international relief efforts, and are just now allowing aid to come in, World Vision has been on the ground from day one bringing supplies to the people of that country – and with the blessing of the Myanmar government.
