Appeal for Flood Relief – Sri Lanka

Thousands of people have been displaced while many have lost their lives following continuous rain prevailing over the last few days throughout the Island. Over 300,000 people remain displaced, and 22 out of the 25 districts in Sri Lanka have been affected.

All donations through the Consulate General of Sri Lanka should be in Australian dollars. Bank transfers can be made to the bank account of the Consulate General at the ANZ bank.
