No schools

Fourteen-year-old Moe Thu described the struggle for survival.

"The villagers' homes, valuables, livestock as well as our jobs were lost," he told aid workers.

He described how the villagers tried to restore a damaged pagoda but "could only contribute our labour, not any money, since everything had been lost in the storm".

Nargis also wrecked the village schools, but as he pointed out: "With our parents struggling just for survival, [the schools] won't be repaired soon."
