Further Aid for the most Vulnerable in Sri-lanka

The latest photos show the devastation of a village that has not yet been reached by government aid workers. I visited the village, which was a 16km walk. No roads lead to the village following the landslides. I visited many families to assess the extent of the damage. Many families have completely lost their homes. One family (parents and three children) was provided with 5 bags of cement, so they can begin the task of rebuilding a home. Another family (parents and two boys) were given money to rent a property to live in until they can start to work on a permanent place to live. I gave 10 bags of cement to a family who also lost their home. During the evacuation another tragedy was endured by this family – the heavily pregnant and very vulnerable mother lost her baby. It is a very an extremely sad and distressing time for this poor family. 500 cement blocks were given to a family with three children in order for them to also rebuild on the foundations of their home. Another family currently live in a mud hut have received immediate provisions of rice and food in order to address their immediate needs. All families received food aid packages as there is nothing else available in the area for them to eat. Thank you so much for the continued donations through fundraising. I am ensuring that aid is received to those in the most desperate need. We will continue to focus on this village in the future to ensure they can rebuild their lives
