The cyclone hit Myanmar back on May 3, and it has been nearly 3-weeks now with many who are still in dire need of international aid which has yet to be allowed to get to them.

Ban Ki Moon called on the government of Myanmar to work with international aid and allow that aid to get to the people who need it most.

Ban Ki Moon confirmed that foreign relief workers are still being banned from helping out those who are suffering, with only 25% of those who need help in Myanmar actually receiving it.
