ACCI Field Workers Alison and Narel Atkinson are responding to flooding in Sri Lanka caused by heavy monsoonal rains.
The flooding and landslides have caused widespread damage across the southern and western parts of the country, with forecasts predicting worse weather still to come. So far over 193 people have lost their lives, many remain missing and at least 557,500 people have been affected.
Alison and Narel run HelpKids Sri Lanka, an ACCI Relief project partner, and through their organisation are coordinating a response with the local government and local churches in the heavily affected province of Kalutara.
Their response will provide much needed emergency relief for those affected, such as dry food rations, clean water, bedding and toiletries, as well as school supplies to help children go back to school. As communities begin to clean up after the flooding the response will also provide assistance to clean wells, ensuring communities have access to safe, clean water.
