These international aid goods, along with those donated by different walks of life in Yangon, have been transported by the Myanmar side to the disaster-hit Ayeyawaddy delta region as reported.
Meanwhile, the Myanmar government has agreed to an offer of the United States to send in humanitarian aid which is scheduled to arrive on Monday.
Myanmar said the best way to help Myanmar is to send in material rather than personnel, clarifying that the country is not yet ready to receive search and rescue teams as well as media personnel.
The deadly tropical cyclone Nargis, which occurred over the Bay of Bengal, severely hit last weekend five divisions and states of Myanmar -- Yangon, Bago, Ayeyawaddy, Kayin and Mon, causing the heaviest ever casualties and infrastructural damage.
According to an official updated death toll Sunday, a total of 28,485 people have lost their lives in the cyclone storm with altogether 33,416 people remained missing.
