Latest RSL News
RSL are proud to announce that at the end of another charity year once again over 95% of all our donors’ money has been spent exactly how and where they intended when they donated it. It has gone directly to benefit the people in Sri Lanka affected by extreme poverty, conflict, disaster, homelessness, prejudice, poor educational facilities, neglect and hunger. The RSL educational facilities go from strength to strength, in particular the Library in Uragasmanhandiya, which has enrolled over 4,000 members who are visiting us from 68 different schools. It has been acknowledged as the most comprehensive, best quality library outside the capital, Colombo. On an average Saturday over 200 members check out books!

Rebuilding Sri Lanka is now in the NINTH year of development work and we are beginning to see real improvements in the lives of many Sri Lankans whom we have helped. It is important to acknowledge that there is still a great deal of work to be done and that rehabilitation will take many more years. It is impossible to do this work without the help and generosity of our donors and RSL would like to thank you all so much for your ongoing support and concern. Together we are making a real difference.
Rebuilding Sri Lanka was founded by a group of individuals and families who were staying in Sri Lanka at the time of the tsunami in 2004. Although we were safe, we saw devastation to human life, the environment and buildings that was beyond description. We are united by a love of Sri Lanka and its people and a desire to help in the rebuilding of part of the country and to enable the people there to re-establish their lives.
RSL is a UK registered charity – number 1109622. We have received donations from friends and families around the world. Many individuals, schools, businesses and clubs have generously given their time and money to our appeal. To date the amount is GBP 1,200,000!!! Any further donations will be very gratefully received. OUR APPEAL IS STILL OPEN. The need for help is still extremely important.
