Ocean Stars has had several appeals from Sri Lanka for help with the recent flooding that has devastated homes in Batticaloa eastern Sri Lanka. 30 of the families sponsored by Ocean Stars are now living in temporary refugee camps. Some of the children who attend our playgroups have lost everything. Ocean Stars has been asked to provide funds for bedding, clothes and dry food such as rice, sugar, powdered milk and dhal. Please donate through Just Giving on our website or send cheques made payable to “Ocean Stars Trust” to
