Mining area Ratnapura, the worst flooding in over a quarter of century.
As u probably know we are involved with AFTG in the education in Srilankan mining area,
Our Lodge, Mine, tea field and all equipment have been being ruined by the flooding.
We will face this disaster and rebuild everything.
More importantly, at least 100 people have died and 500 000 evacuated from their homes, in this humanitarian disaster.
Srilankan miners - who have been supplying you, directly or indirectly, in gemstones for years - now need your help. Most of their houses and equipment are destroyed.
With your help, your support to us will have an immediate and substantial impact to the miners. We can feed families who have lost everything in the flooding, give them a place to stay and help rebuild their home.
Here are few ways that you can help : - A donation of $25 dollars will help provide emergency meals, blankets and shelter to a family displaced from the flooding - A donation of $100 dollars will ensure that 4 local families will have a safe place to stay and a warm meal - A donation of $500 dollars will help repair the houses.
Any amount you decide to donate will be very much appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of our Srilankan miners whose lives have been suspended.
Together, we can restore of Ratnapura to the place that we all know and love.
As gemdealers, it is time to show our solidarity towards our Srilankan suppliers and families.
Please help them !
With a budget of 120 $ each.
We target to distribute tomorrow sufficient food for 235 families for one month including :
