Trip in 2011 by Crest to Myanmar for the followup on Early Childhood Care Development Center (EDC) and post Cyclone Nargis development in the land of Myanmar.

In 2008 Cyclone Nargis made landfall in Burma/Myanmar. It was a devastating storm that killed over 138,366 people and caused at least $10 billion (USD) in damage. The hardship on the people living there was immense in a situation where life was already hard. CREST responded with different relief efforts through local partners.
