One year after Cyclone Nargis destroyed the villages of Myanmar's Irrawaddy Delta, the monsoons are back …
threatening vulnerable families still living in makeshift shelter.


UNICEF's Deputy Executive Director Hilde Johnson visited the region and is calling on donors to step up their giving to address the lack of permanent shelter and livelihoods.


"We need to see a much larger response from donors to be able to finance and scale up both of these facilities of housing as well as for livelihoods," said Ms. Johnson.


"It's with more income that people can invest in building a stronger base for their future."


Ms. Johnson travelled throughout the Delta region, where more than 800,000 people were made homeless by the May 2008 cyclone and more than ¾ of all health facilities were destroyed.


Since then, UNICEF has helped secure vaccination, emergency medical care and clean water for the affected areas.


Ms. Johnson was able to inspect some of the 50,000 earthen jars made to help households keep clean water through the dry season to come.


In a village in Bogalay, Ms. Johnson talked with health care workers about their technical supply needs.


In Laputta, just two young children, a sister and brother are left at the UNICEF supported home for orphaned survivors of the cyclone. This little boy was diagnosed with tuberculosis while he was undergoing treatment for malnutrition.


Here in Kungyangon, is one of the greatest recovery stories: a bigger, better school with new latrines and playgrounds. At an opening ceremony, this young boy told Ms. Johnson that in the old school, he sat and wrote on the floor.


UNICEF regards this and a dozen other new schools as models …
"The main thing now is that the government takes this on, and build schools at large scale that are stronger and can hold in the wake of storms and bad weather and natural disasters," said Ms. Johnson.


UNICEF contributions will help build up to 50 schools but another 300 needed in cyclone affected areas of the Irrawaddy Delta.
