Press Release by Little Aid
June 3, 2010
On 26 May 2010 Little Aid volunteers in Sri Lanka distributed dry food items to 175 families seriously affected by flooding in the Gampaha District. These unfortunate families live in a place called Sedawatta which borders Negombo lagoon. Rev Fr Ananda Withana Parish priest at St Joseph Church in Pamunugama is helping Little Aid to co-ordinate relief after recent flooding. Little Aid delivered food bags to people there and next week also deliver essential medicines to the Pamugama Hospital which is the only main hospital between Ragama and Negombo. These medicines will be delivered from Little Aid's store room in Negombo to St Joseph's Church in Pamunugama. Rev Fr Ananda Withana will hold the stock in the church store room and supply it according to the requirement of the hospital. These medicines were donated to Sri Lanka by Medicine without Borders.

Little Aid ( is a charity aiming to help people after the war in Sri Lanka. At the end of the war, we provided immediate relief to camps in the form of food items, clothing and medicine. Little Aid has also facilitated rehabilitation of orphans and ex-combatants, most of whom were children themselves. We are currently working in collaboration with other organisations to provide medicine to parts of Sri Lanka and are organising rehousing for orphans. Little Aid is committed to 100% transparency and accountability on an almost 'real time' basis and do not have any artificial, stereotypical or ideological barriers to their missions.

We sincere thank Rev Fr Ananda Withana for co-ordinating and advising us and also our volunteer in Sri Lanka Mr. Joseph Vithanage who helped us on the ground. You can see the full details and expenditure of this project in
