Save the lives of Sri Lankans from Covid-19.
Covid-19 is spreading rapidly in Sri Lanka. Let us come together to save the lives of Sri Lankans.Nationwide
It is reported that the Covid-19 pandemic is spreading rapidly in Sri Lanka at the moment.
About 178,000 patients and over 1,350 deaths have been reported due to this pandemic as of today, 29th May 2021.
At the moment nearly 30,000 active patients have been hospitalized and are receiving treatment. Many of these patients require special care, such as high flow oxygen, ICU beds etc.
It is also reported that the hospital system in Sri Lanka has almost reached maximum capacity. The most dangerous situation is that it is not easy for a country like Sri Lanka to handle such a situation.
We believe that one of the most useful and life-saving things we can do at this time is to provide mainly medical equipment to the hospitals in Sri Lanka.
Accordingly, we have decided to collect donations and use all the proceeds to provide medical equipment and financial assistance to the health system in Sri Lanka.
Even the smallest donation you make will make a difference.
Let us come together to save the lives of Sri Lankans.
NZSLBT is incorporated as a Charitable Trust in 1999 under the provisions of The Charitable Trusts Act 1957. NZSLBT carries responsibility for all administrative matters of Sri Lankaramaya, including the financial management involving its affairs.
Use of funds
All the proceeds will be used to purchase medical equipment and to provide financial assistance to the health system in Sri Lanka.

Update - Please share this with your friends 22 June 2021
First of all, we would like to thank all of you who have supported our fundraising project so far.
We would also like to take this opportunity to inform you about the current situation in Sri Lanka as well as the work we have done so far.
The number of COVID 19 patients in Sri Lanka is now around 240,000 and the death toll has risen to more than 2,500. As per The Ministry of Health of Sri Lanka, many people that have been hospitalized with Covid-19 have passed away due to shortness of breath.
There is currently a severe shortage of equipment needed to treat this, we have decided to purchase 7 High Flow Air/Oxygen machines and send them to Sri Lanka.
These machines will be purchased from F&P Healthcare, New Zealand, and sent directly to the selected hospitals. The total cost of these machines including accessories is NZ $35,000.00.
We humbly request you to pass this message to those who have so far been unable to donate in the success of this great cause.
Please help us to save the lives of our fellow Sri Lankans.
