Floods in Sri Lanka

By now, most of you would have been made aware of the horrendous flooding which is ravaging our dear motherland. Various media outlets are reporting that the death toll is fast approaching two hundred with the displaced count towering at a staggering five hundred thousand–and counting. 

The SLANSW committee is awaiting direction from Sri Lanka on what type of assistance is immediately required to assist the victims of this heartbreaking disaster. Please stay tuned as we will be communicating how members and well wishers can assist as soon as we have more information.

The Consulate has been informed of our unwavering desire to help in whatever manner is required.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who are suffering from this calamity.
