Cyclone Nargis
The East-West Center community expresses its deepest sympathy for the victims of Cyclone Nargis, which devastated Yangon and much of lower Burma over the week-end.   The East-West Center enjoys a long relationship with the people of Burma.   Our hearts reach out to the EWC alumni in Burma, their families and friends, and all the people of Burma who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy.  We hope that the international community can effectively help local citizens and authorities in the recovery and rebuilding efforts.
