2 Sri Lanka Flood & Landslides
On 14 – 21 June, CREST deployed an assessment team and attended to immediate needs in Sri Lanka together with our local partners. You may click here for our full report.
During our distributions, majority of the afflicted had not received any aid. The needs are plentiful and our help is limited. Dengue outbreaks in the flood area have become our top priority, we are sending in a public health team from 14-19 July.
“We are so touched by your help (Malaysian donors), you are so far away from us, but see our needs. Even our close relatives, just few miles away from us, they have not come to visit us.” SMS received by Ps Sathees (Local Partner).
