Foreign Minister Steinmeier pledged financial support of one million euros to the Sri Lankan Government today (23 May) to help it deal with the aftermath of the severe storms of recent days. The Federal Foreign Office will provide one million euros in humanitarian aid for the victims of flooding and landslides.
The funding will form part of international support for Sri Lanka and will be provided in coordination with the Sri Lankan Government and aid organisations in the country.
The aim is to help those most in need. Germany will not only help Sri Lanka in the short term with this natural disaster, but will also do its utmost to support and foster development in the medium term.
