WARNING: Due to the Wikinews's open and collaborative nature, it cannot guarantee the veracity of outside links or the absence of possible scams involving charities, thus the potential danger of fraud exists. In particular, beware of bogus organizations that have names similar to those of well-known aid agencies. Also beware of unsolicited emails that ask for your donation online. For those who want to make a donation, the most secure channels are established web sites and well-publicized telephone hotlines.

The Autism Awareness Campaign Sri Lanka are not collecting money themselves but are working with local partners - the respected Rotary Club of Colombo Regency.
How you can help:
The Rotary Club of Colombo Regency, plans to implement the relief effort in phases in order for it to be effective.The immediate need is for water and dry food items like biscuits, and canned fish, as displaced people are unable to cook meals just yet. In addition, basic medicines and clothing are also essential.
The second phase in a few days will be to provide dry rations, milk powder etc. as hopefully by that time people would have been moved into refugee camps.The third phase (5 to 7 days) would be to conduct health camps to prevent/treat any outbreak in disease caused by polluted water and lack of proper sanitation etc at the refugee camps.In the longer term, rebuilding of life and property would take an enormous effort and would need worldwide help.If you wish to contribute by way of any items listed above or by cash or kind, please write into this site or phone/email: Tharanga Gunaratne +94 777 389075, email@example.com
