COVID-19 Relief Fund for Tamils in Sri Lanka

COVID-19 Relief Fund for Tamils in Sri Lanka

Date: 03/20/2020

Ilankai Tamil Sangam America has set up an emergency fund to assist Tamil families impacted by the COVID-19 in Sri Lanka. The fund will be used to provide relief for families dependent on daily wages and also any families with health issues due to COVID-19. Sangam will be partnering with local NGOs to provide the essential supplies as many families that dependent on daily wages are drastically impacted by the lockdown implemented due to Covid -19.

The project was initiated by Vice President of Sangam Mr. Aiyathurai Jeyakumar and executed with the help of grass root organization “Missing Persons Families” that operates at ground level in Jaffna, Batticalo, Amaprai, Kilinochchi, Vavuniya, Mannar. Also involved are the other grass roots organizations Valluvar Foundation from Dikkoya in Upcountry and People Welfare Association. The project was well executed and provided desperately needed help for Tamil families living in North, East and Up Country in Ilankai. Please see below for the “GoFundMe” campaign established for this project and also see the attached pictures of the relied efforts.
