Sri Lanka experienced intense rains as the southwest monsoon season arrived earlier than expected. The impacts of these downpours are far more devastating than previous years. Communities were devastated by the unexpected floods and landslides.

Mercy Relief deployed a team on 30 May 2017. Together with ground partners we distributed 750 relief packs to the affected communities across 3 districts, benefiting over 4,000 survivors.

We are inspired by the survivors resilience and compassion to support each other. There is a strong sense of community in Sri Lanka and we celebrate the indomitable spirit of each survivor.

On the ground we met Dhilip, a survivor himself, who serves his community by shuttling food and supplies to families who lost access due to flooding. Like Dhilip, we can all do a little something.

Do your part. Help Mercy Relief support individuals like Dhilip and so many survivors who are coming together to help one another, fight back and protect their way of life.
