Message from the President & the Secretary General
Our hearts are extended to the people of Sri Lanka as it mobilizes relief and recovery assistance to those hardest hit by Cyclone Roanu, its worst floods in 25 years.
We know the Sri Lankan communities can be very strong in the face of such devastation and while there is great sadness and uncertainty associated with such destruction, there is the underlying hope of recovery.
A Chinese company on Thurday has donated 100 Air-Water machines to the Maldivian Red Crescent (MRC) to assist in its response to the ongoing water crisis in Male’. The Air-Water machines which use humidity in the air to produce clean drinking water were donated by the F N D Company based in the Shenzhen City of China.
The machines which generate up to 4600 liters of pure drinking water daily can deliver hot and cold water and mineralized water. Quality and safety of water produced by these machines are currently being tested by the EPA.
