Island side, Jaffna
Description:

Background
In Jaffna there are several islands that have been isolated from the connection to the main area of Jaffna due to the ethnic war that prevailed in Sri Lanka for the last few decades. Most of the families in this area have had family members either displaced, abducted or killed or abducted, resulting in the move of their families to the homes of either their relatives or friends' homes in the mid part of the Jaffna Peninsula, in order to maintain their livelihood.

After the war ended in 2009, although much advancement has been made in Jaffna, there is still a lot of work to be done for the island residents.

How you can help
The need for medical kits for the 2 schools in this area has been identified.

In cases where a child in either of the school's in this area are injured, there is no first aid that can be administered in the school's itself, rather the patients need to be transported to the District hospital.

In an effort to develop the first aid and paramedic team as first response to minimize the risk of serious injuries and casualties, we hope to donate fully equipped first aid boxes to 2 schools.

Transparency:

100% of your donation fund a first aid box for the following 2 schools:

  1. Pun RCTMS
  2. Pun Raja Rajesweary

We are committed to complete transparency and accountability.
