If your club or name does not appear in these lists, our bank has yet to receive your funds (cheques and money orders take time to arrive; wired funds can also take up to ten days to be received). However, please email Rotary Regency with bank transfer or cheque and money order details at if you believe we should have your donation by now. We will be expanding these lists as pledged donations arrive. Additionally, if you wish to confirm the specific amount you or your organization donated, please email us and we'll respond as soon as possible with your donation details.

We apologize for the delay in acknowledging the many contributions to our Relief Fund. It has been incredibly time-consuming designing and managing a relief effort while still working our day jobs. If you are outside of Sri Lanka, we hope our blog has given you a window into our work and that you feel your money has been well donated.

Please correct my Aunt's name from Swarna to Warna Samahin. Warna Samahin is her correct name.
