Background

Hi, my name is Akash De Silva, and I work for the Voice Foundation Sri Lanka (https://www.voicefoundationsrilanka.com/). The Voice Foundation is a government registered non profit organization that strives to actively protect those impacted by violence, oppression, injustice, crime and natural disasters.

Project

As you all know we are experiencing one of the most devastating natural disasters in recent times. To reduce the suffering of the victims we at the Voice Foundation wish to provide immediate relief to severely affected families displaced by the prevailing flash floods.

With your help we hope to raise Rs. 600,000 in two phases to deliver essential items that are desperately needed; mainly dry rations (milk powder, sugar, rice), drinking water, clothing, undergarments, sanitary wear, footwear, mats, sheets, towels, pillows, candles, soap and such basic essentials.

We propose to raise Rs.300,000 in the first phase to support 500 individuals, spending about Rs.600 per person. We seek to complete the first phase by 4th of June 2016 and subsequently commence the second phase to raise Rs.300,000 to support another 500 individuals.

Our collections through this campaign will be used to help the below Sri Lankans

Children’s spectacles Province Number of families Number of people

Camp locations;

With approximately 420,000 people affected by the floods of which about 299,000 remain displaced, we are currently assisting roughly 6,000 individuals with public assistance in five key areas. There continue to be pleas from many other regions within the island for evacuation and relief support which serves to only increase numbers who need assistance. People in these areas have lost their homes, and all of their belongings.
