UK: Friends of Unawatuna

An appeal from Friends of Unawatuna, a group of private individuals who have pledged their personal support (financial or otherwise) to assist the regeneration of the community of Unawatuna, Sri Lanka.

'The people of Unawatuna have lost every thing - families, homes and livelihoods. Friends at Unawatuna, set up by survivors of the disaster, is a long term project. The aim is to help the villagers rebuild the basic infrastructure necessary to allow them to reconstruct their lives.

This will include the reconstruction of sewage, clean water and electricity supplies, and to provide the materials to allow them to rebuild their community. Steps are being taken to set up facilities for donations which will be administered at no cost by the Friends of Unawatuna. Until this exsists, please register your support and pledge your donations to support@friendsofunawatuna.org.uk

To Friends of Unawatuna group: I tried to write an email to you, but it bounced back to me as being a bad email, not working. I tried to send it again, but I thought you should know about it.
