Island donates money to flood-hit Sri Lanka

Mon, 07 Mar 2011

The Isle of Man is donating over £40,000 for relief efforts in flood-hit Sri Lanka.


Over recent weeks the country has been devastated by heavy monsoon flooding which has left hundreds of thousands of people without homes.


The Overseas Aid Committee is now donating money to two charities which are helping those affected by the crisis.


It will go towards providing food, bedding and other essentials and support clean-up operations to protect against water-bourne diseases.


A further £9,000 is being given to UNICEF which is working with refugees from the Ivory Coast who've fled to Liberia because of political unrest.
