Myanmar/Burma Cyclone appeals - immediate humanitarian relief needed.

I hope the Burmese government immediately allows non-political humanitarian disaster relief agencies over it's borders to help with securing clean water, emergency food rations and medical aid to the flooded delta area. This immediate action would help to save lives, prevent outbreaks of devasting disease such as dysentry and typhoid and allow the government to continue to coordinate the huge amount of work that will be needed to start rebuilding the country's infrastructure.
