Myanmar: Situation in Laputta

ko-htike received an email from a friend who had seen the situation in Laputta, Myanmar: “More than ten thousands victims are staying, sleeping on the wet ground under the miserable roofs in the camps of the monasteries and pagodas; and some victims are staying outside in the rain. They have no proper toilets and enough water for drinking and cleaning up. Clinics have no enough medicine for patients. Only the hospital is full with the patients and it can't accept next new patients because of lack of medicine and free beds.”
