Help for Cyclone Victims

Gallaudet University has raised $2,300 from students and faculty to support deaf victims of the cyclone in Burma (also known as Myanmar). The donation is being sent through non-profit organization assisting deaf people worldwide called Partners in Excellence. A relief worker involved with the Mary Chapman School for the Deaf will handle the distribution of the funds. The government in Burma provides no social services to deaf people.
