This is a fundraising appeal by the Singapore Red Cross (SRC) for the economic and humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka. In response to the crisis leading to widespread resource shortages across the country, SRC has committed SGD100,000 for urgently-needed medical supplies and other basic necessities in aid of vulnerable communities in the country.
According to The Sri Lanka Medical Association (SLMA), all hospitals lack access to imported emergency drugs and medical equipment. The situation has compelled health authorities to limit hospital operations and issuance of medications to patients, resulting in a possibly unprecedented humanitarian crisis in the country.
"The escalating humanitarian crisis, brought about by the economic collapse and the growing civil unrest, endangers the well-being of all communities in Sri Lanka, particularly those already vulnerable."
-- Mr Benjamin-William, CEO and Secretary-General of SRC.
Prices of basic goods have skyrocketed while life-saving medicine and basic food staples have become increasingly scarce.
We call for your support to this critical humanitarian operation.
