Many of you wish to give donations to help those in need of aid. However, it is clear that international organisations, including the UN, are having difficulties, due to the belligerence of the dreadful military government. This link may be of some use for those wishing to bypass the regime.

By going through this site, you donate money directly to the monks in Burma.

Giving to the monks is a smart, fast way to get aid directly to Burma's people. Governments and international aid organizations are important, but face challenges--they may not be allowed into Burma, or they may be forced to provide aid according to the military government's rules. And most will have to spend large amounts of money just setting up operations in the country. The monks are already on the front lines of the aid effort--housing, feeding, and supporting the victims of the cyclone since the day it struck. The International Burmese Monks Organization will send money directly to each monastery through their own networks, bypassing regime controls.
