Kolonnawa is a low-lying area in the outskirts of Colombo inhabited by all three ethnic groups of Sri Lanka Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim. The area was inundated during the flood in May. People experienced property damage and loss along with severe living conditions during the flood and according to the head priest from the local Buddhist temple the area hardly received any help from outside. This much-needed mission was made possible with the generous and timely support from Rissho Kosei-kai`s “Donate-a-Meal Fund for Peace” movement.
