In Sri Lanka

Sue started helping communities in Sri Lanka after the devestation of the Boxing Day 2004 Tsunami wiped out vast communities on the East and Southern coasts of the small nation.

Sri Lanka Appeal for Bruno – January 2005 – December 2006

Sue mobilised and managed the collection and shipping of 75 boxes of aid for Tsunami victims in Sri Lanka.

Working with a local tour leader in Sri Lanka and a priest in the north-eastern town of Trincomalee, Sue made two trips to tsunami ravaged regions. She visited refugee camps, assessed needs and returned a second time to collect the goods that had been shipped and distribute them to people living in the camps and community.

Sue’s efforts raised approx $50,000 worth of goods andmobilised support from over 150 donors and supporters.

For a further 18 months or so, Sue continued to assist the community in Trincomalee by raising funds and providing assistance with living and education. Over the short period of time, Sue also raised raised and distributed over $4000 to the community in Trincomalee.
