With the active monsoon season, adverse weather conditions were affecting all over Sri Lanka during the previous week. The Sail Lanka team has been monitoring the situation from the very beginning and decided to launch operations in time to rescue people who were displaced by the floods.
The team has identified the people residing in Ekala, Ja-Ela areas as the most affected, as the floods are restricting people who are trying to relocate and aid them from getting in. Therefore, the SLC team worked tirelessly to relocate the people into secure places and distribute food and medical supplies.
We would especially like to express our sincere gratitude to team members who took part in this noble cause.
