Generous Austrian Rotarian donates water filters, tablets

Rotary Club of Colombo Regency would like to publicly thank Rotarian Florian Demmer of Vienna Point, Austria for his continuous support of our relief effort. On January 9th we received from him a consignment of water purifiying filters and tablets - valued at 10,000 Euros! - which is currently being distributed by Regency to camps in Batticaloa, Kalmunai and Potuvil.

This is neither the first nor the last donation he has made to our club. The first donation was a consignment of medical supplies, and he has told us that a third consignment of medical supplies from him is in transit from Austria. He has been extremely helpful and generous towards our club's relief efforts. We look forward to his arrival in Colombo at the end of January with a delegation of Rotarians and friends to meet with us and discuss long term projects which they would be willing to fund.

Thank you, Rtn. Florian Demmer.
