Sri Lanka Flood Appeal

Monsoon rains across the southwest of Sri Lanka have caused the worst flooding in over 14 years, displacing more than half a million people and killing close to 200. Those who have been rendered  homeless are currently being housed in schools, churches and similar buildings in safe places. In certain areas the flood waters reached as high as 10 to 15 feet. Transport  in these areas has come to a standstill. Electricity disconnected and the armed forces are still engaged in the rescue operations.

Some of the most effected towns are precisely where Links International partners are working on the frontline to change lives and transform communities. One particular partner reported to us that their church and community centres had been completely flooded by the rains. Despite this tragic and incredibly difficult situation our partners are responding, sending out flood relief and shelter to the hundreds of families that have been left homeless. It is imperative that we act quickly to lift up our brothers and sisters and to help them to move from surviving this tragedy, to rebuilding and moving forward.

Please give generously.
