The 5th consignment of relief goods by GOLD FM Cares initiative distributed in Galle; Health camp programme starts tomorrow

The 5th consignment of relief goods collected under Gold FM Cares initiative was distributed among the disaster affected people in the Galle district today.

Our staff engaged in the noble act sought assistance from the Sri Lanka Air Force to distribute the goods among the needy flood victims who are not accessible by land due to floods and earth slips.

Earlier, the 3rd and the 4th consignments were delivered to Kalutara and Ratnapura districts.

Several container loads of relief goods were transported to Galle today.

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.

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.

Having realized that the next challenges before the disaster hit people are contagious diseases and health issues, Gold FM Cares relief initiative has come up with another program to counter such dangerous situations.

Accordingly, Gold FM Cares initiative, in collaboration with Sri Lanka Red Cross Society has planned to hold medical camps in disaster affected areas.

A preliminary discussion with regard to the program was held at the Sri Lanka Red Cross headquarters in Colombo today.

An agreement to that effect was signed and, CEO of Asia Broadcasting Corporation Dhammika Bandara Tennakoon and Sri Lanka Red Cross Deputy Director General S.B. Madugalle were the signatories to the agreement.

“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.
