This is an effort to speak with someone on the ground in Sri-Lanka.
I am a 39 year old male living in US I have applied for my passport and am planning on volunteering to help in the rebuilding of the devastated areas in sri-lanka. I feel that I should help and my experience and skills in construction and engineering and operation of heavy equipment among many others seem to be needed. I would like to get the opinion of those there about this I don't wish to be a "missionary" of any sort. I just want to help those who need it. I feel that our country has sent many troops to war in other countries and i too a a veteran of the military but I feel very strongly that this need is great and requires a great response. If anyone has any information of others groups that I can contact once I am on the ground in Sri-Lanka I would greatly appreciate it. I have contact many relief organizations concerning this matter and it seems as though the bueracracy is a stumbling block to some humanitarian efforts as common. My email address is Drdknoughtt@netzero.net I invite anyone to respond with comments or questions or information.
Dan thought this might be of help. I wish I'd seen this post earlier.I was in Sri Lanka for about a month looking for a volunteer oppurtunity.It was a very frustrating process till I got ahold of the AOG.This is there website http://www.peopleschurchsl.org/basecamp_updates.htm.Call them up I'm sure they'll be able to help you.If you need more information my names Kiran Desilva email:firstname.lastname@example.org.
