A Note from Dr Charitha Perera
Dear Friends, On behalf of the Adelaide Covid 19 fundraising committee, I wish to inform you that the Sri Lankan Food Fair held on Monday 14th June raised a sum of $33,032.
We also thank the large number people who visited and supported the food fair, the sponsors for their financial assistance, and the Hectorville Cricket Club for providing the grounds and their brand-new club house facilities for free.
With the addition of donations collected through the Adelaide Sri Lanka Buddhist Vihara joint appeal, the total Covid 19 fund now stands at over $45,000 and we are in the process of organising the donation of essential medical equipment to the hospitals in Sri Lanka through the Ceylon College of Physicians.
Charitha Perera, Honorary Consul for Sri Lanka, Adelaide
