Myanmar Chess Federation Appeal

ASEAN Chess Confederation executive director Peter Long sent me an email yesterday to ask if I can help with the Myanmar Chess Federation Appeal for victims of Cyclone Nargis. Honestly, there's probably nothing more I can add to what Mr Long himself says about this tragedy over on his blog. I leave it to you to decide if you want to help.

Thank you so much for posting Maung Maung Lwin's appeal.

It might be of interest to your readers that 4 of the 6 the Maynmar players who have been playing in the recent 2nd Philiipines Open, 1st Subic Open and Philippines-Maynmar Match have just returned home and they went straight to teh disaster area and donated whatever little prizes they had won together with allowances given.

Their participation in the tournaments was made possible with Ignatius Leong paying their plane fare and NCFP President Butch Pichay giving then free board and lodging together with a small daily allowance.
