Following Saturday’s devastating Cyclone Nargis in Myanmar (Burma), Architecture for Humanity is asking for help in rebuilding the country over the long term. They write:

While the media will focus its attention on the loss of life, there will be millions displaced in the coming weeks — and like most natural disasters, there’s no plan for long-term sustainable reconstruction. Large aid agencies like Oxfam and Care will be knee-deep in immediate delivery of aid. How will the country respond to the long-term strategic need to rebuild the country?

We will need to raise a minimum of $10,000 to provide design services to communities affected by the disaster. This is a small start, but could affect tens of thousands of those displaced.

In the first 6 hours of this drive, AfH raised $4,000 from over 120 donors. Learn more about this appeal >>
