Sri Lanka Easter Sunday Appeal

Following the Easter Sunday events in Sri Lanka, we would like to thank everyone for your kind messages of concern and support. It has been a very difficult time for our staff and for the communities we work in.

It is only now that our staff on the ground have been able to assess the immediate needs of those affected. Following meetings with Directors of Batticaloa Hospital we have together identified urgent medical and non-medical supplies to help those affected.

We are now launching an appeal for funds to support our Easter Sunday response.
This appeal will finish on 31st of May 2019.

About Volunteering Volunteer Feedback

"I will never forget this trip. The students here are so grateful for everything. At home students don't value things in the same way. I will remember a lot about this trip."

This is an amazing experience that my daughter will never forget and is an experience that we as parents will never be able to give her. She has come back inspired and full of confidence and gained several life skills along the way. Sri Lanka was really special. Thank you.
