YMCAs Badly Affected!

Шри Ланка – страна в Южной Азии с населением чуть больше 20 миллионов человек – стала жертвой громадного по масштабам наводнения, которое уже унесло 16 жизней. В результате стихии свыше 300 тысяч человек вынуждены покидать свои дома (если они еще не разрушены стихией) и искать пристанища в специально созданных лагерях в отдаленности от пострадавших территорий. Свирепствующая природа повредила здания больше пятнадцати YМСА страны. Комитет по чрезвычайным ситуациям Национального YМСА Совета Шри-Ланки поддерживает связь со всеми пострадавшими YМСА и предпринимает все возможные действия по оказанию помощи.

Комитет обращается ко всем YМСА мира с просьбой о помощи в борьбе со стихией, ведь, как известно, один в поле не воин, особенно в бою с неистовой природой…(перевод Насти Веленец)

YMCAs Badly Affected!
The worst floods and earth slips in Sri Lanka have affected more than 120,000 thousand people and claimed over 16 lives. Badly affected Eastern Province is cut off from the rest of the regions and YMCAs there have sent urgent SOS messages seeking help.

YMCAs in Batticaloa, Kalmunai, Ampara, Kallar, Mandur, Kaluwanchikudi, Akkaraipattu, Komari, Valaichenai, Turaineelvanai, Trincomalee and some YMCAs in the North are submerged in water.

Rail and road transportation have come to a standstill in most of the affected areas. Worst affected are 36,000 IDPs in Batticaloa another 63,000 in Polonnaruwa living in camps.

In the Eastern Province all schools are closed to accommodate affected people. Five of the deaths occurred in the Kandy district when a boulder dislodged by the rains demolished six houses.

All reservoirs have exceeded spill level and over 200 irrigation tanks have breached sending floods into villages.

823,003 people from 218,007 families have been affected by the bad weather prevailing in the country. Out of the affected, nearly 70,000 people have sought shelter in 179 camps, 111 of them in Batticaloa district.
