The Sri Lanka Association of New York (SLANY) has created a “Go Fund Me” account where 100% of funds collected will be transferred to a special account that has been set up by His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, of the Metropolitan Archdiocese of Colombo for helping the victims of the terrible attack that took place on Easter Sunday morning.

In this context, under the leadership and guidance of His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, all fund received will be used for the following.

·        Psycho-social and pastoral support program for the traumatized victims in order to be in solidarity with them and to be of support in rebuilding and empowering their lives.
