In this meeting Director General briefly explained the upcoming even in HROSL. 

A one day training program on "Fundamental of Human Rights" was held on 05th June 2016 at Goldi Sands Hotel in Negombo at @ 9.00 am - 5.00pm with the participation of around 130 new members of the Human Rights Organization of Sri Lanka.


On May 15, 2016 a sudden and continuous downpour engulfed the entire island of Sri Lanka for more than 24 hours. Intense rainfall caused flooding and landslides in the Central, North West and Western Provinces of Sri Lanka. A low pressure system that was forming along the north-west coastline of the country swept through the island into south India with heavy rains in its wake that caused rivers and dams to overflow. The opening of sluice gates as a result of this sudden surge of rain caused massive downstream flooding in the North West and Western regions of the country.

With the rain continuing to batter many parts of the island, 12 Districts and 428,948 people are affected while 299,806 people have been displaced. Some 58 deaths have been reported so far and 132 people remain missing. 

Landslide prone areas are on high alert with 4 major landslides occurring over the past 3 days.  A massive landslide that occurred on Tuesday (May 17) has buried three villages in Kegalle District and the search and rescue operations continue in the area with the support of the Sri Lanka Army.

In Kelaniya, Kolonnawa and Wellampitiya (areas within a 15km distance to Colombo) overflowing rivers and canals have caused rapid and intense flooding in urban areas (flood water levels are over 6 feet). Several households have been without water and electricity for days.

The Human Rights Origanization of Sri Lanka is planning to respond to the needs emerging from the growing numbers of the affected as water levels rise due to continuous rains and open sluice gates. We plan to provide relief and recovery assistance to a target of 5,000 families in the relief phase and 3,500 families in the recovery phase.

Our goal is to ensure that children and their families affected by this disaster are protected with life-saving assistance and their dignity restored as they return home. Immediate relief will include non-food relief items, personal and community sanitation and hygiene, drinking water, child protection and education provision, and assistance in search and rescue operations. HROSL’s focus during recovery will be economic recovery, disaster risk reduction, restoration of water sources, and education. We are requesting for funds from donors and private sectors to support the recovery period. Please join with us to do the flood relief activity.
