Myanmar (Burma) Cyclon

Nearly 100,000 people died according to the U.S Embassy in Myanmar. 2 million people desperately need food, water and shelter. Their life is still in danger.

Tourism has been promoted by a minority of advocacy groups as a method of providing economic benefit to Burmese civilians, and to avoid isolating the country from the rest of the world. “We believe that small-scale, responsible tourism can create more benefits than harm. So long as tourists are fully aware of the situation and take steps to maximise their positive impact and minimise the negatives, we feel their visit can be beneficial overall. Responsible tourists can help Burma primarily by bringing money to local communities and small businesses, and by raising awareness of the situation worldwide,” states Voices for Burma, a pro-democracy advocate group.
