Saturday, 25 April 2009 MERCY Malaysia launches Sri Lanka Relief Fund for humanitarian aid MERCY Malaysia launched the Sri Lanka Relief Fund to assist thousands of survivors of the civil war that has plagued the country for over 20 years.
We are concerned as reports from humanitarian agencies as well as other international observers say there is a large number of injured and sick among the survivors.
We welcome contributions to the Sri Lanka Relief Fund, which will be used to channel much needed medical aid to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Menik Farm, a government-designated safe zone.
We are in the process of equipping four 40-foot containers that will be turned into health centres. The health centres will provide medical assistance to a population of 40,000 IDPs in the Cheddikulam district of Sri Lanka. Each centre will be equipped with an outpatient room, a pharmacy, a medical screening counter and transit beds.
We hope to handover the four fully-equipped containers to the Sri Lanka Ministry of Health on May 2, 2009. To do this work in Sri Lanka and to continue long-term programmes among IDP communities in Cheddikulam will depend on the generosity of donors.
