RED CROSS APPEAL FOR GREATER ASSISTANCE FOR NORTHERN RECOVERY

Sep 27, 2011 10:40:23 AM - itnnews.lk

The Sri Lanka Red Cross Society has appealed to the international community for greater assistance to the process of recovering the North.Its President Jagath Abeysinghe said that the communities living in the North and East faced the traumatic experience of almost 25 years of conflict as well as having borne the brunt of natural disasters such as floods, drought and especially the tsunami in 2004, resulting in being uprooted from their homes, in addition to their kith and kin and property. The Sri Lanka Red Cross Appeal also underscored that it was time for the international community to re-dedicate itself to uplifting the conditions of the affected families in the North, by providing the necessary humanitarian assistance and support to Sri Lanka.

The Red Cross President reaffirmed the commitment of the Red Cross volunteers to the recovery phase deeply engaged in building houses, providing livelihoods, water and sanitation and other vital community based activities.
