Hollywood, CA, May 15, 2008  –  The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has donated $100,000 to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) for their relief effort underway in Myanmar (Burma), it was announced today by Jorge Camara, President.

“The tragedy that has happened to our world neighbors in Asia is unfathomable, and two million people have been displaced in addition to the thousands who have perished,” said Camara.  “Although our charitable contributions are usually devoted to scholarships and film preservation, we realize that our international organization must contribute whatever money we can immediately to help the millions of victims of this terrible catastrophe.  We urge the Hollywood community and the public at large to contribute as well.”
