Tsunami Disaster Relief Volunteers needed
Many concerned people around the world have expressed interest in coming to Sri Lanka at their own expense to contribute their time and expertise to help with the big task of helping some two million people to put their lives back together after the worst human catastrophe in recent times.
The Living Heritage Trust's mission continues to evolve and redefine itself. From at first merely rushing to see who died, who needs help, and delivering immediate relief in the form of cash, clothing and basic food items, we are now looking at accepting responsibilities far greater than we at first imagined. The enormous task of cleanup and restoring basic services is still in progress and will take months, if not years, to complete.
For example, volunteers are needed who can work in an office environment drafting local relief proposals (urgently needed but also a long-term task). and teaching computer skills to young local volunteers here in Kalmunai. If you want details, write directly to Living Heritage Disaster Relief Coordinator Patrick Harrigan.
However, in today's global village, one does not have to be physically present in Sri Lanka to help. Even now, many of you are actively engaged in such relief activities as fund-raising and newsletter publishing from your home or office.
Volunteers who have needed experience or expertise, may work directly with the Living Heritage Trust, or Living Heritage can place you with another local NGO here. Already volunteers from Australia and America are in the field on the east coast, and more are welcome. For details, contact Patrick Harrigan at email@example.com.
