14 out of the 25 districts have been affected by floods. 52,503 families and 200,382 persons.
Sarvodaya will confine it's initial emergency response only to worse affected 6 districts - Colombo, Gampaha, Kalutara, Galle, Rathnapura and Kegalle. We are coordinating with the respective Divisional Secretaries and unaffected Sarvodaya societies to provide emergency relief as some areas are not accessible by road.
Sarvodaya USA's experience with the 2004 tsunami in Sri Lanka and the 2015 Nepal earthquake has taught us that working with grassroots organizations can make a critical difference. The best use of your donation is through people familiar with local needs and resources.
That's why Sarvodaya USA is accepting donations for our sister organization in Sri Lanka, founded by Dr. A.T. Ariyaratne of the Sarvodaya Shramadana movement of Sri Lanka. Sarvodaya staff and societies around the country have dedicated their energy to address challenges and disasters over 50 years of history in Sri Lanka.
Donations are being accepted and relief and recovery efforts are underway. Learn more and donate here.
