There has been a mass exodus of civilians escaping from the war zone in the Mullaitivu District during the last few days resulting in an emergency situation in the Vavuniya district where Sarvodaya has been providing humanitarian relief services for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) during the last 4 months supplementing the efforts of the government, UN agencies and the International humanitarian organizations. The number of IDP sites have more than doubled during this week and Sarvodaya has been called upon to meet the increased demand for food, water & sanitation shelter, care for the children, public health services. We are making this call to all Sarvodaya friends to make any contribution you can make at this critical hour. All donations will be individually acknowledged and accounted for and regular reports and financial statements will be posted on this site.

You can send your donations in through any of the following channels.
