There is an urgent need for various equipment to help tackle the escalating crisis. This equipment includes:

1) Beds to care for the increased number of patients needing help in the Intensive CareUnits

Urgent Appeal to Support Sri Lankans affected by the latest outbreak of COVID-19

As the new wave of COVID-19 pandemic has affected Sri Lanka with a rapidly rising infection rate, there is a growing demand for essential medical supplies.

In addition, the ongoing travel restrictions in parts of the country have affected many families relying on daily wages.

In response to the current crisis APSL is launching an urgent fundraising campaign to provide essential medical supplies to hospitals and dry rations to families in need.

APSL already pledged support to the SLMDA appeal to provide oximeters to Sri Lankan Hospitals. Initial funds raised through the APSL fundraising campaign will be allocated for this urgent requirement.

We are reaching out to you for your kind donations to help our fellow Sri Lankans in this hour of need. Please donate via Virgin Money Giving or Facebook, using the links below.
