- WHY CARE ABOUT BURMA?
- WHO WE ARE
"After the Storm: Voices from the Delta" is an independent, community-based assessment of health and human
rights in the Cyclone Nargis response, published by the Emergency Assistance Team (Burma) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health and Human Rights.
In May of 2008, the world watched in horror as evidence mounted from Burma that Cyclone Nargis had been an enormous storm resulting in great loss of life. Offers for emergency assistance poured in from around the world as the numbers of the lost and the
missing rose into the tens of thousands. Yet the ruling Burmese junta, the State Peace and Development Council (SPDC), proved reluctant to accept aid or allow skilled relief workers into the flooded Irrawaddy Delta.
This report brings forth the uncensored voices of survivors and independent relief workers in the challenging months of reconstruction following the cyclone.
