Bishops’ Appeal donation to Burma cyclone aid

Friday May 23rd 2008

The Church of Ireland Bishops' Appeal has given €10,000 as an initial emergency donation for relief of those affected by the cyclone in Burma.

This is to be channelled via USPG Ireland which has effective means of operation through the Anglican Church in Myanmar.

Martin O'Connor, Education Adviser, Church of Ireland Bishops' Appeal, said: “ Bishops' Appeal is available to channel further earmarked contributions through this and other appropriate channels as we continue to investigate the best means to route funds in a situation where as everybody knows establishing effective links within the country has been extremely difficult.”
