    Story

    People of flood affected areas of Sri Lanka need your help right now.

    Over 200 people have been killed and nearly 500,000 displaced in Sri Lanka following flooding and landslides triggered by monsoon rains affecting the country at the moment. A further 113 people are missing and the toll keeps rising.

    14 out of the 25 districts have been affected by floods. 52,503 families and 200,382 persons.

    We at the Monsoon Mountains Tea Company are aiming to donate all monies from tea sales as well as direct donations to help with aid. Every gram of tea sold goes to the peoples of Sri Lanka affected by devasting floods and landslides for the second year in a row now, due to exceptionally brutal monsoon storms. Your contribution will help relief workers provide drinking water, foodstuffs, and emergency medical supplies as well as towels and bedding.

    We at the Monsoon Mountains Tea Company and Sri Lanka are selling Fairtrade Ceylon Teas and are donating all monies from tea sold, as well as donations to help with the aid effort. We are working in close partnership with Flood Relief Aid workers at a grass roots level.

    You can make a contribution here, but also by purchasing our tea through our website: www.teahills.co.uk

    Ceylon Tea is the cleanest and by far the finest tea in the world.

    Many thanks and blessings,

    Rebecca Mackay,
    Proprietor,

      tea sales are certainly helping. Although the threat of flooding is now past, reconstruction efforts are still going strong and your help is still needed. Sri Lanka has not seen this kind of damage since the Tsunami of 2004, and it will take a long time before displaced people have new or repaired homes to go to. So many people have lost everything.
