Sri Lanka: More Volunteers Needed

Any unaffiliated volunteers arriving in Sri Lanka can get in touch with Bee or Paul at the volunteer helpdesk. They're running a Volunteer help desk and are helping volunteers who arrive in the island to ensure that their support goes in the right direction. The help desk is also run by volunteers, not an organisation.

The phone number is + 94 112 394 343. If you're dialling from anywhere in Sri Lanka outside Colombo or from a mobile phone then it's 0112 394 343. If you're dialling from Colombo it's 2 394 343.

IMPORTANT: All volunteers must be protected against Typhoid, Hepatitis A and B, and Malaria. Missions to the camps will last 6 weeks and all volunteers should be able to dedicate that much time. Much help is needed.

I will be arriving in Colombo within two days. I am trying your number from India but it is difficult to reach.

Will I get an opportunity to work in the EAST (I prefer east as I had been there more than 10 times and know all the areas from Batticaloa to Ampara). Please email me reshsurp@yahoo.com
