When Cyclone Nargis hit the Irrawaddy Delta on 02/05/2008, 68 year old U Hla Tin, who is paralysed down his left side, was still able to carry his 60 year old wife to safety. Mr. Tin hasn't been back to his home. He doesn't believe his neighbours when they say that his hut has been destroyed. He and his wife now live alongside other refugees from the 7th ward, Hlaingthaya township in Rangoon (Yangon), in the Shwe Than Lwin shopping complex, which is under construction and has acted as a small refugee centre.
