Transcript of part of a radio interview between Karen Percy reporter and Andrew Kirkwood Director for Save the Children in Myanmar.

KAREN PERCY: Children have been among the most vulnerable victims of Cyclone Nargis. Some are orphaned. Some are still hoping to be reunited with their families.

Experts say the cyclone will have a long-term effect on many of Burma's youngest citizens, but for babies, even now, it could be fatal.

Andrew Kirkwood again.

ANDREW KIRKWOOD: In every community we go to there are children, young infants who have separated from their mothers and who are not being breastfed at the moment. And we know that if we don't find other women to breastfeed these kids soon, that they are likely not to survive the next few months.
