Sri Lanka floods Appeal

Intense rainfall sparked widespread flooding across Sri Lanka on Friday (26) and heavy rains continued to lash south-western part. Thousands of people in Galle, Matara, Kalutara, Ratnapura and Hambantota have been affected by floods caused by heavy downpours during the last three days. All low lying areas around Kalu, Nilwala and Gin rivers were completely submerged. The government placed the number of people dead and missing due to raging floods and earth-slips caused by heavy rains in several parts of the country on Thursday and Friday at 200. Deaths were reported from Ratnapura, Kegalle, Kalutara, Gampaha and Matara Districts. It is understood that nearly 200,000 people have been affected by the floods.

People affected by the floods need emergency relief items. As people in two provinces have been affected by the floods, they need all the help they can get. Assist RR is therefore appealing for funds to assist the affected people. Please kindly consider donating any amount using this link. Assist RR has already made arrangements to distribute water, children milk powder, and other emergency relief items using a donation from an anonymous donor.
