Ongoing Relief work
The global pandemic affected Sri Lanka, which led to an island-wide curfew and left many in vulnerable situations. The daily wage and low-income earner, the disabled and the elderly were amongst the worst affected by this crisis. Losing their means of income left them destitute with no means to purchase essential provisions such as food and medication needed for themselves and their families.
The NCEASL and its relief and development arm, the Alliance Development Trust, the Religious Liberty Commission, Missions Commission and the Youth Wing spurred to action to ease the devastating impacts of COVID-19 in the country. We worked tirelessly serving communities through our networks and reached out with financial support and essential relief packs.
The NCEASL produced COVID-19 awareness material and multi-media content on a wide range of topics that addressed different parts of society.
We produced a publication addressing the responsibility of faith leaders and the Church's role in the context of the pandemic. The document also addresses health and safety guidelines for faith communities.
The Religious Liberty Commission (RLC) published a booklet regarding the laws governing COVID-19 in English, Sinhala and Tamil, which was circulated amongst churches and civil society groups. The RLC also produced a publication addressing the responsibility of faith leaders and the church's role in the context of the pandemic. the document also addresses health and safety guidelines for faith communities.
The Missions strengthened pastors and leaders by creating awareness on safety measures for COVID-19 by circulating trilingual digital booklets among them whilst also initiating online prayer meetings with the national prayer team and the members of the General Council, soliciting prayers during this period.
The Youth Evangelical Alliance (YEA) initiated a mental health campaign through its blog 'Paan Kade' to encourage practices that help build and maintain mental health during the crisis. Further, to equip and mobilise Christian youth to respond to the crisis, the YEA produced a trilingual toolkit themed 'Following Christ in the Crisis'. The toolkit aims to encourage young people to get involved with issues that have emerged amid the pandemic.
Help provide vital medical supplies for hospitals treating Covid-19 patients
Hospitals across Sri Lanka are struggling to cope with the rapid increase of Covid-19 patients. This is causing shortages in vital medical supplies which are needed to keep patients alive. We need your help to reduce the increased pressure on hospitals and equip them to deliver urgent care to those in need.
You can help save lives by contributing financially to purchase High Flow Nasal Oxygen Therapy devices, Oxygen Concentrators and Oximeters for hospitals that desperately require this equipment.
High Flow Nasal Oxygen Therapy devices are capable of delivering up to 100% humidified oxygen to patients at a high speed. As a result of damages caused to the lungs, if patients are given oxygen at the normal speed, as in the case of general wards, the supply is inadequate to fulfill the oxygen requirement of the body.
A High Flow Nasal Oxygen Device costs approximately LKR 1,350,000.00.
An Oxygen Concentrator is a medical device that helps in concentrating oxygen from the surrounding environment. The device takes in this air, filters it, releases the Nitrogen back into the air and works on the remaining oxygen.
An Oxygen Concentrator costs between LKR 250,000.00 and LKR 325,000.00 depending on its volume.
An Oximeter is a medical device that estimates the oxygen saturation of the blood and the pulse rate. This device gives vital information about the amount of oxygen carried in the blood without having to draw a blood sample.
An Oximeter costs between LKR 6,500.00 and LKR 12,500.00 depending on its features.
How you can help:
The NCEASL is hoping to purchase 5 High Flow Nasal Oxygen Therapy devices, 10 Oxygen Concentrators and 100 Oximeters. We will work with the health authorities to channel these supplies to hospitals where it is needed the most.
