Immediate Flood Relief Assistance

Dear All

 

Immediate Flood Relief Assistance

 

As you are aware, due to heavy rains that have been prevailing over the past few days in many parts of Sri Lanka, a large number of people are affected/displaced and many have lost their lives.  Their properties were also severely damaged.

 

The relief and rescue operations are being conducted by the Ministry of Disaster Management with the support of tri forces and other agencies.

 

Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan authorities have convened a meeting with the Diplomatic Corp based in Colombo, with a view to obtain immediate and intermediate foreign assistance.

 

With regard to the assistance from our Sri Lankan expatriates, it is suggested that it be in the form of cash donation, since it would be economical to purchase most of the urgent relief items locally and provide through the funds available.

 

Your monetary contributions could be deposited to the following official bank account of the Mission under intimation to the Mission. The High Commission will issue an official receipt in respect of such donations received.

 

Bank Account Number:      028–900074-4

Name of the Bank:               DBS

Name of the Account:         Sri Lanka High Commission

SWIFT  Code:                       DBSSSGSG

 

We highly appreciate your kind assistance and solidarity shown in this hour of great need.

 

 

 

Nimal Weeraratne

High Commissioner
