MAN, SUBTITLES: I had to leave my child. Why did I have to leave him? Because I couldn't find him. I had to run without my son. He... He's stuck
behind. If he is dead, alive or starving, I don't know. Those who ran... my son... whether... So, if I see... we need hope.

NARRATION: Okay, it's 3:53, on 27 April 2006. These are all people fleeing an ongoing attack of the Burma Army. And it shouldn't be raining this much
in April but this has been a very rainy month, and so it's a pretty miserable situation for these people, not only have they lost their homes and they're in danger of losing their lives, now
they're out here in the rain. And just watching the children underneath the plastics and the mothers trying to protect them... Not very nice. Anyways, and I want to say thank you to Partners,
especially, as well as everybody else who's helping to send in plastic and other needed materials for shelter in this emergency situation. God bless you.
