I can't imagine how difficult it must be to use candlelight instead of electricity, and having to bathe in a nearby lake? What about potty time? This is certainly a big crisis for them!

Food, potable water, and medicines are the primary needs in such crisis but hindered by unaccessible damaged roads. And with so many corpses lying around, diseases will soon aggravate the situation if unchecked. Unfortunately, the military junta restricts and corruptly pockets aid coming from outside.

Yes this is a real disaster. What makes it even worse is that the military junta which controls the country will not allow other countries like the USA or the United Nations inside the country to help them. Considering the scope of this disaster, this adds a disater on top of this. People are willing and able to help but can we really trust them to do the right thing for their people? I dont know what they have against the US and why they wont allow the US to help.

Hi estherlou! It is really devastating when I saw it in the news. I feel sad for them and I know how it is to live like that. Here in our country, we usually experience the same thing every year due to the super typhoons that frequently visits our country each year. I hope that help will come their way soon. Just my thoughts dear. Take care and have a nice day!

It is certainly difficult to just manage to survive in such a crisis. I am afraid that many more people will be challenged in this way. I think I could manage, but who knows. it is hard to imagine.
