Despite the country’s refusal of U.S. aid and slow response to get help to its citizens, Catholics and Muslims in Miami Gardens have joined efforts to collect donations for cyclone ravaged Myanmar.

Islamic centers throughout South Florida will be taking up collection during their Friday services, and Catholic parishes have been asked to do the same.

“We’ve gotten a press release from our partners in Myanmar, that the aid is getting through,” said Gloria Luna, of Catholic Charities. “There’s about 10,000 people already that have been helped with food.”
