We are currently assessing the needs of the IDPs and working with The Governor of the Northern Province, The Disaster Management Unit of the Health Ministry and the Ministry of Health Doctors in Vakkarai, Batti, Killinochi and Mullativu to supply some of the urgent and essential needs.
We are urgently and immediately collecting the following items. We will be working directly with the MOH teams and ensure that the donations get to the medical facilities that are caring for the displaced. (Read More)
Temporary shelters are of high urgency to move people to safer areas. For this purpose if anyone has the means of donating GI sheets these can be directly used through the Governors office to supply immediate shelters for the IDPs in the Mullativu and Kilinochchi areas. The schools and other governments buildings in these areas have also been badly affected so they are being moved to higher grounds.
ACT will assess and make bulk purchases of medical items which we will update you all of shortly. The following items are needed in bulk, so any quantity of donations would be greatly appreciated. All donations should be dropped of to Michele Mirchandani – 4 Maitland Crescent Colombo 07 – Mobile 0777 788 484
Thank you in advance – please pass on this list to anyone that maybe interested in donating. We will keep you posted of the progress moving forwards.
