Ler Shee's Story: Myanmar Cyclone Relief
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Ler Shee's life changed forever. One day he was a young boy with parents, a brother, and a sister. He was also a student. The next day his parents, his brother and sister, his home, and his school were all gone. His country had been hit by Cyclone Nargis.
 
2     Cyclone Nargis hit Asia in May of 2008. It was a deadly storm. A cyclone is a tornado, or a storm with a quiet center that has strong and dangerous winds around it. Parts of Ler Shee's country, Myanmar, were destroyed because of the storm.
 
3     Myanmar, which is sometimes called Burma, had some problems before the storm hit. The government is a military government. It punishes anyone who is against it. People are not supposed to meet in groups, even peacefully. It is tough to get good care if you are sick. In 2008, there were about 48 million people living in Myanmar.
