Assist Resettlement And Renaissance
Who we are
Assist Resettlement & Renaissance (Assist RR) is an independent organisation which was formed in 2012 to relieve the poverty of innocent victims of war in Sri Lanka by assisting and enhancing their livelihood. Assist RR have also been providing educational, and healthcare supports to people affected by the civil war. Affected families were originally displaced during the final phase of the civil war and spent a number of years in various refugee camps / welfare centres. They have been facing extreme hardship after they were resettled in their villages. People were being housed in temporary shelters without water and toilet facilities and are still living on rare hand-outs without any work or job opportunities. Since the creation of our charity, Assist RR, we have completed projects worth more than £1.5 Million (Rs 350 Million) with funds raised following appeals by Assist RR. Many Diaspora Tamils and many likeminded organisations from UK, USA, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada, and Australia have been coming forward and providing funds to fulfil the needs of the victims of war. These projects have been implemented with the assistance of Assist RR (Sri Lanka). The trustees of Assist RR (UK & SL) used not even a single penny or cent on any overheads or expenses including travels to Sri Lanka and in Sri Lanka or UK. Funds raised are used 100% on assisting the needy.
