The third consignment of disaster relief collected by Asia Broadcasting Corporation under its relief operation Gold FM Cares is being distributed among the people the weather affected in several divisional secretariats in the Kalutara district.

The Gold FM cares initiative launched by the Asia broadcasting corporation to support the people affected by the inclement weather, is receiving a great response from People Island wide.

The Gold Fm cares initiative launched covering many areas of the island is currently receiving a large number of aid at its collection points.

Those willing to contribute can send in items such as dry rations, drinking water, new clothes, medicine and school equipment to our collection centers located in many areas across the island including the special collection point located at No 156/2, Nawala Road, Nugegoda.

Centres are set up to receive relief items at Sri Vachisvara Sunday School of the Meditation Center in Moratuwa – Rawathaawaththa, Rajamaha Viharaya Kotte and Kolonnawa Rajamaha Viharaya.

Those residing in Gampaha could hand over relief items to Gampaha Medagama Siri Sunandaaraamaya, Aththanagalla Puraana Raja Maha Viharaya or Divulapitiya Priyadarshanaaramaya.

3 centres are established in Kurunegala namely, Padeniya Raja Maha Viharaya, Sri Jinarathana Sadaham Sevana, Kotawehera, Nikaveratiya and Bauddhaloka Vidyayathana Pirivena – Kurunegala.

Meanwhile, another centre has been established at the Mahiyanganaya Rajamaha Viharaya.

Buddhist Centre in Nuwara Eliya, Chandraa Nanda Buddhist School in Asgiriya are also accepting relief items under the Gold FM Cares project.

Regional Director of Health Service Office – Mirijjawila – Hambantota and Seenigama Devala also has centres set up to accept relief items.

The first and second stocks of relief collected under the initiative, was handed over to the Air Force and were distributed for a third day by the Airforce to those who cannot be reached via land.

The helicopters of the Airfroce made many trips by air in order to distribute relief collected in many containers.

Asia Broadcasting Corporation has decided to suspend distribution of cash prizes among its viewers and listeners and divert the funds to provide relief to the disaster affected people.

In addition, it is significant that Asia Broadcasting Corporation has granted its own relief to that of the value of relief assistance provided by the people.

“Gold FM Care” relief operation is determined to properly distribute assistance to the victims who are really affected by the disaster.

We at Gold FM invite all of you to be a part of GOLD FM Cares, for the benefit of our very own people affected by inclement weather.
